Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A CM investigation has revealed that the CPC pass rate has been in decline, plunging at its lowest to just 40%.

Until June 1999 candidates sat two multiple-choice papers. But under the terms of a European Union Directive they now also have to pass a two-hour 'case study' written paper which requires a more in-depth knowledge of the industry.

Operators and industry bodies claim that this has made the CPC harder and that the pass mark has been raised. Also many people may not have the literacy skills or training needed to complete this paper.

Oxford Cambridge RCA, which administers the scheme,denies that the exam is getting harder and says the latest results are fine.
