Analysis and Model Solutions for Paper D
DeltaPatents' tutors have developed for all exam papers very detailed and thorough Analysis and Model Solutions. The Model Solutions provide the correct answer to the respective papers as well as a structured methodology for finding the answer.
The papers and model solutions have been updated for the legal provisions as valid on 31 October 2023, i.e. the relevant legal texts for EQE 2024 (as far as known at the time of printing in July 2023), including the recent law changes to the EPC and PCT Rules, other OJ publications, ADA/AAD2022 (as in force per 10/9/2022), recent case law, the EPO Guidelines of March 2023, the Guidelines for Search and Examination at the EPO as PCT Authority of March 2023, the PCT Applicant’s Guide status July 2023, and the Euro-PCT Guide edition 2023.
The papers and model solutions include time limit calculations using both Rule 126(2)/127(2)/131(2) as in force in 31.10.2023 as well as Rule 126(2)/127(2)/131(2) as in force in 01.11.2023, to support EQE 2024 candidates that either version of the provisions, at their choice, in lines with the Decision of the Supervisory Board of the EQE dd 26 June 2023.
Most of the papers have also been adapted to the e-EQE format with a DI in two parts, including an indication of the time available for each part (based on the same 20% extra time as with the Online EQEs 2021-2023 to compensate for the restriction that candidates cannot freely distribute their time over the complete paper, but have to complete each part in the time available therefor).
The model solution of D 2023 (Nappies) will become available after the tutor meeting (scheduled late October), so presumably early-mid November.
As candidates need to take the exam from the screen, we will also provide the paper in pdf form to the candidates that buy a model solution, so that they can practice taking the exam from the screen, and they can copy text from the pdf into their editor.
