Hi, I've got everything crossed right now that i've passed dec PEV exam, but have big doubts that the last question mean i'll have failed.
I've already booked to study DFS and PCR with kaplan to sit in June - besides the last question of PEV i was really confident, and still am pretty much to resit, so is it asking too much to sit all three together in June? Ideally i'd've done PEV and PCR together anyway but for personal reasons couldn't do both and be confident to get through them last year and just did one instead.
Also, do you have to pay to sit a simulation? I want to do cash control but its all by distance learning and i don't know if there is a charge (like the exams?).
Hoping the 18th comes round quick!

    Do you have a history of first time passes? If so 3 AAT exams in one sittings is definitely achievable. Good luck, I'm sure it will only be two exams anyway.

    if i fail, it will be the first time i've failed an exam (except my driving test, that took 3 times to get through!). Fingers crossed. Thanks.

    I've sat four technician exams in one week and just about managed to get through it so three is possible.

    It would be a lot of hard work but given one may be a resit, that's definately achievable.

    Good luck.

    Hi blacksheep. I'm doing those 3 exams in June - was meant to be taking PCR in December but couldn't make it coz of the weather.

    (I also took my driving test 3 times!)

    Good luck

    thanks everyone for all the encouragement!
    Good to hear other people have managed the same, it must be possible then!
    In preparation (and to burn off some early enthusiasm for studying again) i spent last night clearing all the rubbish off my desk and making it look 'sensible' again.
    I mostly studied for PEV from the big armchair in the living room in front of the tv, and think i should do it properly this time.

    how sad is it that i am actually looking forward to studying? roll on february.

    Rozzi Rainbow - such a great feeling when you finally make it without stalling in busy school traffic or switching from 4th to 1st gear on fast main road... "Now i've passed my test, i can learn to drive" as my dad says.

    For me, it didn't work, I took PCR, PEV, DFS last June. But it wasn't a good time for me, what with debt, and having to travel to college. I wasn't settled so it didn't work out. So it depends on your circumstances. I retook all 3 in December, bad timing again as I'd not long since split with a girl I was seeing, but I concentrated only on DFS and PEV due to that, and only did a little PCR revision as I wasn't holding out much hope for that one with my state of mind at the time. So just try to concentrate on passing at least 1 or 2 of them. If you fail one, so what, you gave it a go, and can try again.

    Im also going to try and do 3 exams in June so I reckon you should be ok. (and it took me more than 3 goes at my driving test!!)
    It could be more than 3 if it all goes horribly wrong when the results come out but fingers crossed!!
