    I'd ring your college and make sure that the exam is definitely not being taken.

    Where were you due to sit it?

    I didnt get to sit any of mine this week as the College has been closed all week. There has been another several inches during the night and it is snowing heavy now.

    I dont know when I will get home! :sad:

    have you guys seen this on the AAT web site

    The heavy snow may affect AAT exams taking place this week in some areas of the UK. We are working with AAT training providers to find out which areas are affected, and to help make alternative assessments arrangements.

    Training providers
    If your centre and students have been affected by the heavy snow, please respond to our email requesting information by midday on Friday 3 December, so we can update our training provider details early in the week.

    AAT student members
    If you live in an area affected by the weather conditions, please contact your training provider or check their website for updates and closure messages.

    I called my college and was advised not to go in for the PCR exam this morning - they don't even know if it's still running as they don't have enough staff in yet.

    I'm absolutely gutted!

    I have PTC tomorrow morning - it's not looking good for that either.

    Thats how I felt Monday and Tuesday cause I never got to sit any of mine. At least now you know something is going to be done about it. On Monday there was no information available at all. I spent hours trying to get hold of the venue where it was to be held and was panicking big time as I thought I would have to wait till June. I completely understand how you are feeling today.

    AAT is very strict with exams and in most cases they should be running. (as i found out yesterday)

    However, I spoke to an AAT supervisor and she mentioned that there may be an oppurtunity to take the exam online?!?!?!?!
