Final FRCA SOE Resources
Final FRCA SOE Videos
The aim of these videos is to demonstrate:
• how examiners perform an SOE
• the way questions are structured
• the level of knowledge required
• examples of pass and borderline performance.
There is a total of eight films in the series: a short introduction, a commentary from the Chairman of the FRCA Final examination, and six 5-6 minute excerpts from SOE 1 and SOE 2 examinations. These excerpts illustrate different aspects of performance and highlight how an examiner might assess a candidate’s response. They should not be taken as model answers.
When watching the films you may feel that some of the borderline performances are close to a pass standard but there are errors in the candidate's performance. You will note clear differences in the pass examples. Candidates should remember that being in the borderline area is not a guarantee of success and you should aim for the highest standard you can achieve.
