RSGB volunteers have developed a syllabus for a new amateur radio exam that will provide a direct route to the Full licence just like the original City and Guilds RAE
The new syllabus, currently in draft form, is set to lead to a new exam that is designed to appeal to those who wish to fast-track straight in at “Full” (Advanced), without the need to go through Foundation and Intermediate first.
The announcement can be found in the recently-released Exam Standards Committee 2019 report - https://rsgb.org/main/blog/category/examination-standards-committee-reports/
The City and Guilds exam was last held in December 2003. It comprised a single 80 question multiple choice paper that had in be completed in 2 hours 15 minutes. Copies of the exam papers from 2002/3 can be found at http://www.g4dmp.co.uk/reports/
