I am really disappointed, there was a shooting nearby the college that I attend last night and because of police cordens etc, our college was closed and we could not sit the exam!!!

I was really ready for it and am just gutted that it turned out to be quite straightforward.

Haven't a clue when we be able to sit it again, just hope we don't have to wait until June!!!

Has anyone else come across an instance where not just one person, but a whole college have been able to sit an exam?

Thanks

    That's harsh,

    Have the college explained to the AAT what's happened, hopefully they be accomodating. I hope you don't have to wait until June.

    Ah that's awful, I hate to say this but I think you may have to wait until June. They obviously can't give you this paper or June's paper early, unless they write an alternative that they use in case something like this happens but I doubt it. Lets hope I'm wrong hey.

    And if it's any consolation I think I messed up section 2 so will have to do it all again in June.

    Haven't heard much other than the AAT have been informed. Assume there is no answer yet. I just wondered if there any sort of contingency in place as you never know what can happen on exam day!

    I really hope I don't have to do it in June, I already have Cash Management, Personal/Business Tax and PEV/PCR aswell as my project to do between now and then and really don't want to have to worry about DFS aswell.

    Thanks for your replies guys

    I hope they can sort something out for you all, how many people are actually in your class? Get on the phone to Henley tomorrow and see whether they are going to be able to do anything about it! x

    I think that it's a bit bad that the college didn't book you into another venue pdq - surely they could have booked a conference room in a hotel or a hall somewhere!

    I would also like to think that you'll get your exam fee back from someone as it simply wasn't your fault (unless you did the shooting?)!
