The purpose of Paper A is to assess the ability of a candidate to draft claims and an
introductory part of a European patent application. The duration of the paper is 3½
hours and it takes place on the 2nd morning of the exam week.
Paper A Resources
There are dedicated areas on EQE-Forum for Paper A Chemistry
and for Paper A Electricty/Mechanics (E/M) where candidates can post questions and
contribute to discussions on Paper A in general and on past papers. A tutor is available to answer questions and to give advice.
On the EQE-Wiki there are articles on how to tackle Paper A Chemistry
and on how to tackle Paper A E/M. There are several commented answer papers for 2009 Paper A Chemistry
which have been reviewed by a tutor and comments have been added to explain where candidates have made errors and how those errors might have been avoided.
For Paper A E/M there is a tutorial on EQE-Wiki specifically
based on 2009 Paper A E/M, but many of the principles apply to the paper in general.
There is a case study for
Paper A E/M which can be downloaded from EQE-Forum. Try it and post your claim.
