I am currently at college taking AAT 3 NVQ, I am sure that I totally failed section 2 of FRA. We have been told that you have to pass all the exams b4 progressing to level 4. (Principal of college decision). (GIT). Any way If I have to retake level 3 will I have to retake the skills test (which I was competent in all three with no aditional work to do) and the exams or wot? please help I am very angry with my self and upset coz my brain just totally went blank on me with section 2 of FRA.

    I doubt very much you would have to re-sit your skills tests... your exam you probably will, but skills test information is all kept in your portfolio?? (i'm doing the diploma route so i'm not entirely sure) Maybe someone else will know for sure!

    No you don't have to redo the skills test - once you've passed your skills test thats it....you would just retake the exam.

    You don't know until you get the results in August whether you've failed...On many occassions I thought I had failed and passed....just don't worry about it until the results day...there is nothing that you can do about it now....have a break and relax!!

    She obviously believes you are capable then... its true more often than not if you think you have failed you haven't (better for you to be suprised that you passed though - would hate to think I aced it and fail!!) x

    Be a optimistic,how can say you are fail? do not think about it and relax, just one mistake will not fail you.

    Enjoy yourself and believe your are passed

    Hi

    This is my first post on these forums however I believe im probably in a similar position to yourself, got section 1 to balance fine however I really do think ive messed up section 2, im happy with my layout for the P+L and BS but i messed up the disposal for sure.

    Anyway my tutor has told me the skills test for this is really difficult how did you or anyone else doing the NVQ Level 3 find it? Ive got to do the test next Tuesday and have been told it may take me ages to complete!

    Not looking forward to it.

    I did the skills test 8 weeks ago. (Aprrox). If u concentrate on D1895, you should be ok, just read the questions. I found the exam far harder than the skills test.

    i agree with rune, i flew through the skills test and only made 1 error (which was adding up!) but think I have made at least 8 mistakes on weds:crying:

    I did the skills test last night, having done D1895 for practice the day before, and can confirm that D1895 is very similar, for the first part at least. Try it out and have a read of the model answers, should stand you in good stead! :thumbup1:

    Oh the skills test WAS much harder. We did our a few weeks back. Finished college altogether now for the summer. What a joy. We did it over 2 sessions. Some people were still not finished.

    Our college's policy is that if you pass ECR you may continue to do PCR and PEV but if you fail then you can not enroll for those units.

    If you fail for FRA then you will not be enrolled for DFS but you can continue for PCR, PEV and the project until you pass FRA.

    Every college have their own preferences

    Our 's tutor's policy is that you can continue to Technician level if you have passed at least one (ECR or FRA) and do a resit in December, but they won't allow you to do the two resits in December as you'd already being doing two exams for the Technician level then as well.

    Going onto Technician

    Our college has also told us that we have to pass both ECR and FRA before we can go onto Technician level. Their reasoning is that there is so much work to do between September and December that you wouldn't be able to dedicate enough time to the new units to ensure your best possible chances of passing the two exams (or one exam and skills test) for level 4.

    The only hope of continuing, would be if you resit exams in December and then start some Technician units in January. When you've built up the momentum of studying, I think the last thing you want to do is take a whole year out just to resit two exams.

    I feel it's harsh but can totally understand their reasoning. I'm just glad they didn't tell us before we took the exams, or the pressure would have really been on :001_unsure:

    Hi Pencil

    Just read your last note;

    Hopefully you will have passed both your exams, but;

    if you haven't ... do you have to go to college to do Technician Level? If you really want to start it before you have completed Intermediate then why not look at other options?

    Perhaps you could do day release or distance learning with another organisation. You could sign up on 22 August, when you know if you need to do any resits in December? I know what you mean about wanting to get oto Technician, it does seem like a waste of 5 months, just waiting for one resit!

    Having said that if it really did all go wrong and you have two resits :crying:, perhaps it is best if you stay where you are - unless they are such bad lecturers and that is why you failed both exams:mad2:!!!!!!!
