INDIA 2012
#1
A couple of years ago a 3-day IRSE Exam event was run in Bangalore and was attended by representatives from many companies / places in India.
There is a hope that we might do something similar early in 2012 but probably much further north this time; discussions re the possibility and nature of the event are in progress.
Keep vigilant for any info published in IRSE News.

I think probably a quick look at the number of candidates against exam venues for IRSE Exam 2011 would help to decide the ideal place for the event. I believe south india (Bangalore or Hyderabad) is still the most likely place as this is where many candidates reside.

Yet to find out, but either Bangalore or Lucknow. Dates also awaiting confirmation but expected to be several days around the weekend of 20th January. I think the various companies are still finalising arrangements and establishing their delegate list.

Now becoming clearer; latest info is Delhi, 13-16th January.
Looks like delegates are currently being selected by the various companies involved in funding the event.

Probably now to be about one week later, certainly in Delhi.
The good news is that I have now got my Visa after a few hassles.

This did take place reasonably successfully; not quite as expected, but then I didn't really expect that!

The intention now is that Study Groups be set up in various Indian cities; we have identified / twisted the arms of some peopl to act as the group leaders who we hope will take the initiative locally to
1) gather the details of those interested across company boundaries
2) arrange with the various employers how where and when the group can meet,
3) decide which modules (2 maximum is recommended per year) the group will support
4) determine whether the emphasis will be placed upon UK / Indian practices and context.
The decision re how many, which modules and in what context an individual is to offer at examination in any year is a decision for each individual and may therefore be more / less / different to that group, but in a limited number of sessions then the group should concentrate on a limited objective to give maximum help to most, rather than spread itself too thin to be much use to anybody.

See section under Study Groups

We also propose that
1. some early mock exams be held at the various centres in July and
2. a follow up weekend session be held in August in Delhi to discuss the various attempts made at those mock papers.

We'll attempt to distribute the various presentations and attendance certificates for the January event to the participants in a reasonable timescale; however don't expect these very quickly as we now have our day job and normal lives to catch up upon; we are not total Sig-nerds although at risk of becoming so!
