General EK exams are every Monday afternoon, according to the timetable in TP2293. Motor EK is every tuesday morning. Anything different is a departure from the mandated schedule and is purely local. TC Service standards specify that Exams must be marked and the candidate notified of the result within 7 working days. Any delay should be appealed to the Director, AMSPE, 330 Sparks St, Ottawa.
Penalties for failure are specified in TP 2293 as follows.
pass mark 60%
50 -60 %, no penalty
40=50%, 1 month before rewriting the failed Exam
30 =39, 2 months
20 -29, 3 months
10 - 19 4 months
5 = 10, 5 months
0 -5, 6 months
Penalty for cheating is failure, 6 month penalty, and charges under the CSA 2001
Advice for EKs, stick to what you know, don't try to learn about something you have no experience of, the EKs, General and Motor, are about what you have done, your experience, not your study habits. If you have the experience, you have a pretty good chance of passing an EK Exam, just answer the questions about the things you have experienced. Why would you even consider a question about coal if you've never used it as a fuel? That's just dumb!
