Exam centres in Essex for external candidates

mandy_smandy_s New MemberRegistered Posts: 8

Unfortunately I failed PCR and PEV! PCR was my second attempt so I am really disappointed (but going to appeal/get feedback).

Now I have the added nightmare that the college that I went to no longer allows people to re-sit their exams there. Does anyone know of any colleges in Essex that will allow me to re-sit there as an external candidate? It really has to be in Essex as I will only have a half day off for each exam and will need to go straight back to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Mandy

    I go to chelmsford college. Barking would probably be ok, I need the nearer the better really.

    You could try Southend college? if not the Barking college is about 30/40 mins drive from Chelmsford.
