Obstacle curse


I must have missed the change when it happened, but it appears that entry to the IStructE is now based on merit.

I refer to the incoming IStructE President's recent suggestion that the Part 3 exam was the main obstacle to new applicants.

I had always thought that being 'known by two fellows' was the biggest obstacle to many aspiring engineers!
