  1. The more eagle-eyed amongst readers may have spotted that the original version of this post stated that the examination period was from 15 April – 7 June (and that the rooms would be available for that period). This was a clerical error, and the period runs from 22 April. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

  2. My Stepson has failed some of his first year exams. Is there help available, either payed or otherwise to support him in achieving the result on a second sitting?

    1. Your best bet would be to get him to approach the Study Advisers (, they will be able to get him on the right track and give advice on any other services available.
