Hello Everyone,

I took my Unit 15 simulation/exam ; Operating a cash management and credit control system exactly two weeks ago at Kaplan. I believe this to be on the 20 th November.

As this was my first simulation, how long do these beasts take to mark, please?

Thanks for any reply.

    I do sympathise, it's awful waiting for results for a sim. Premier Training used to tell me to allow 28 days, and thats how long it usually took them.

    Thanks a lot for for your reply.

    I was hoping you were going to say two weeks!!

    I will be gutted if I have to re-do it.

    Simulations, in my view, are much harder than the actual exams. More demanding questions, less past papers to get a "feel".

    hi,

    i know from doing sims with prem training that they take about a month to come back, with regards to failing i dont think you can necesarily fail, if there are areas that you havent quite shown full competence in they send alternative q's for you to answer and these then complete your sim and it gets sigen off. This is the way Premier Training work so i presume that Kaplan may be similar.

    Hullo :),

    Some Kaplan Sims i have heard back in two weeks but not my last. That was unit 32 and took ages. The markers wife and him had been ill. They might still be on catch up from that. I would call them and ask. I had to keep calling and pestering to get them to pester the marker lol.

    Good luck

    I am with Premier too and it took about four weeks before I got the results of this one as it has to get approved by the AAT after Premier mark it. As for simulations being harder than past papers I thought that until I did the ECR on Monday. NONE of the past exam papers were like this!

    Hi the simulations I've taken with BPP have sometimes been marked a quickly as a week but normally take three weeks.

    Sometimes you can do / are required to to additional questions, rather than a re-sit
