Event Overview

The webinar is delivered by two Fellows with different technical backgrounds, and is aimed at trainees who are contemplating taking FD2 (the drafting exam).

The webinar will cover the purpose of the exam and how it is marked, how to approach the exam, and some tips for extracting the information you need to draft claims and techniques for writing claims.  The speakers will also discuss how trainees with a non-mechanical background can approach the exam, and that it’s not as scary as it might seem!
