From 2021 the EVDC entry exam consists of two main parts. Part I a (Theory) and Part I b (Case Oriented Multiple Choice), and Part II (Practicals). A candidate must pass Part I a and b to be eligable to sit Part II, thus payment should only be for Part 1 a and b until the Candidate has passed both prior to payment of Part II.
