I had a private message last night from someone who has just joined saying that their Tutor has informed them that Resits are to be next week. Has anyone heard about this as I have never been informed?

    Ive just spoken to the AAT again and they have told me that i will recieve an email by tomorrow outlining what my options are, i.e. whether there will be resits, refunds etc. Only monday they told me someone would be phoning me this week....doesn't look like thats happening now. Anyway hope this helps jewels!!

    Hi, Ok ive got it from the horses mouth! I have called AAT and the resits are on Tues/Wed/Thursday next week (I am taking DFS) so this is def on. There will also be an option that if you cannot make these days you will be offered CBA which must be taken by the end of the year! Talk about stress!!

    Hi Jo,

    After being told this morning by the AAT that they still didnt know what was happening I phoned my Training Provider and they told me that they had received the same email last night that your Tutor had got. The lady I spoke to confirmed what your tutor told you and advised me to contact the College where I was due to sit them. I have eventually got hold of someone there and have been informed that they will find out this evening and will definitely contact me tomorrow to confirm that the resits are next week.

    My Training Provider informed me that the only one that wouldnt be available as a CBE is MAC (Which is one of the ones I need to do) The AAT havent said yet what is to happen about MAC if the College isnt able to accomodate the exams next week. This apparently will be decided by tonight.

    This is so bloody stressful I am frightened I muck up after all this worrying! :sad:

    Jewels you've got the advantage of another BTC paper to look at too, from 30th November, it's published now so that'll help!

    Just enjoy the use of the extra time.

    Depends which paper - we were told today that the system wasn't going to be repaired till 17th so can't see how they can do re-sits till then!

    I didnt get informed either it was Jo who pm'd me last night thats the only reason I knew. I phoned the AAT this morning and was told they knew nothing about it. Then this afternoon when I phoned my Training Provider they said that the AAT had sent an email to them yesterday late on in the day. I was then told to contact the College where I was meant to sit them and they said that resits are possibly happening next week and a decision was being made by 5pm today. The College is supposedly gonna phone me back tomorrow.

    So if it wasnt for Jo I would still know nothing as noone at all got in contact with me even to say this may be happening.

    I've just been told the other person sitting it isn't doing it until after Christmas so could I do the computer based one instead. Anyone know how different this is and if I can find examples anywhere please?

    I would NOT recommend it. I have had no experience myself but everyone that has done it has had nothing but hassle just look at all the posts on them. Push them to get you to resit a paper based one as it was not your fault they were cancelled.

    For the people who have had their resits confirmed are you sitting paper based or CBA's? AAT seems to think they will be CBAS as a decision still hasnt been made?!?!?
    Ive just spoken to the AAT again and they are telling me to call back Tuesday if i havent heard anything and that there are meeting continuing today as to what will be done.
    I tried calling my study provider and they just told me to call the AAT!

    Has any one had their exam resits confirmed by the AAT at all? i am really worried these resits will take place and i will miss them because knowone will tell me anything :(
