Update on 7th September 2013: This blog post has been removed following receipt of the following email yesterday. I have replied, offering full co-operation, explaining that I did not know that these were actual exam questions and notifying Ms Anderson that I will write my own mock exam questions which will be posted at tradesexams.com shortly.
Notice of Copyright Infringement
The City and Guilds of London Institute (“City & Guilds”) is the
owner of the copyright in the assessment materials for all City &
Guilds’ qualifications including but not limited to the
qualification Requirements for Electrical Installations (2382).
You are offering on your blog, specimen exam questions. We have reason
to believe that these questions incorporate our exam questions either
directly or substantially. For example Mock Exam #1 has 12 questions
which are identical and a further 16 questions which are substantially
similar to ours.
Copying of our exam questions without consent is not acceptable to
City & Guilds not only on the basis of copyright infringement but also
because it indicates that there has been a breach of our assessment
security procedures. We therefore ask that you:
1. remove all the questions from your website; and
2. inform us how you received these questions, so that we may identify
any breaches of assessment security.
Please contact me on the email address given both to confirm receipt
of this communication and compliance with our requests. If we do not
hear from you by 13 September 2013 we will consider what further
action we may take.
We look forward to hearing from you.
