    i would definately sit the exams if you sit the exam and don't pass then you've lost nothing if your planning on not sitting it anyway - go on give it a go - i don't feel 100% confident either but i'll give a my best shot - good luck whatever you decide to do

    i have felt like that before and again feel like it now for the 2 i am sitting.

    go along, do the exam - you will get the experience of the exam situation and you never know.

    give it a go, we have all been there.

    give it your best

    Im feeling exactly the same about ecr. Im just doing as many past papers as poss and hoping for the best. As others said before, go along, if you've paid already you have nothing to lose and you may suprise yourself!

    Hi

    I feel for you. I go through this thought process everytime, and I will admit that I have paid for 4 exams and not sat them at the time, and afterwards when I saw the papers I could have kicked myself for not trying.

    I have doubted myself this week, I have 3 exams DFS, PCR and PEV and perhaps like me you would sooner not take the exams than get a failure, but I have told myself that this time I will sit them all and hopefully surprise myself by passing.

    What exam is causing you problems??? Can we help you to change your mind??

    I was going to hold off on PCR as had not even looked at it up to a couple of weeks ago but figured it was gong to cost me £50 to defer sitting it or £43 to sit it so just went for sitting it.

    Hi A-Vic,

    I know the feeling, lol. I think once you've done them once you remember the answers if you do them again. I havent got any others, I have a couple of sims and a mock exam. If you havent got that I can scan it at work, but that wont be til next weds now. Pm me if you want me to do that or email you the sims.

    Remember the exams are competence based, you don't have to get every answer perfectly correct. As long as you show your workings and follow through with your answers you might surprise yourself!
