D 2016 - distribution of the scores




















This is a histogram showing the distribution of all the D scores of all candidates in 2016. This scoring 0 are people who regsitered, but did not show up.

The dips at 43-44 and 48-49 are due to candidates who originally scored in that range being re-evaluated to see if the Examination Committee unfairly penalized someone. Their papers were rescreened to see if they were "fit to practice", and if so, extra points were awarded where merited.

There were in total 958 candidates, scoring an average of 47 points. The scores ranged from 7 to 86.

      Because a PCT application is equivalent to a EP application - Art.150 EPC
      Because the EPO handles more PCT applications than EP-direct applicatons
      Because ...
