This office has been receiving frequent queries regarding plan of conducting Patent Agent Examination. In this regard, it is clarified that same is likely to be held before December, 2016. Detail information regarding same will be published on official website after finalization of schedules and other official requirements (19 July, 2016)
This was long overdue as the last examination was held in 2013. See our post on it here.
In 2012, I had created a website to help people prepare for Part II of the patent agent examination. Some of you have been writing to me to enable access to it individually. Please note that the site is available for all without any permissions required. The site is: https://sites.google.com/site/prep4patexam/
We wish all candidates the best of luck in the preparation of, and taking the upcoming examination.
