I support the sentiment that the 'Review process is a success not a failure' (NCE 25 January).

The problem is in the execution. The current system produces a regular crop of disgruntled candidates, making claims which now include overt disregard for Council policy.

Candidates expect a fair hearing, a just outcome, and are fully aware of the risk of failure. David Rogers admits that mistakes are made, but these do not apparently include bad candidates passing, good candidates failing, or problems with particular examiners.

Reviewers have a very difficult job, but this a serious business, with serious consequences. Procedural reform of the review system is long overdue, and should form a part of the modernisation process.
