Finishing Intermediate before New Std's change

Hi all

Hope someone can put my mind at ease tonight. I am currently trying to complete two outstanding sims unit 6 & 7 before the Std change, by home study through Kaplan. I am waiting for my mock sim for unit 6 to come back before sending off for the actual simulation, and then I must start looking at Unit 7. I thought I had until the end of June to complete both these units, but someone has just mentioned that their home study (premier) have said they have to get theirs completed by the end of March! ?? Er if this is the case i'm pretty snookered - so am now wondering if I am waisting my time even trying to complete it now. Any input would be appreciated, I am going to phone them first thing 2moro just to clarify, but as I said i'm panicking now!!

    Before you get too worried. There is still an exam session in June.

    With skills test a lot will depend on the marking and such, but really, the best thing to do, as you already plan on doing is to call Premier training.

    oh and to stop worrying of course!

    Last Exams in June 2011

    but skills tests can be reported until end of December 2011.


    Premier may themselves have imposed their own deadline on their students. This is understandable because it is very difficult to keep track of students and to make sure that they are attempting the correct standards assessments.

    Thanks guys for your reply's

    Have just phoned Kaplan and I have until the end of April to do both of them!!!! Guess I'll be going into hibernation until then - Oh blimey, don't know what to do now, do I go for it hell for leather and see what happens or do I fold in now and do the whole of Intermediate again? :)

    Ive just had an email back from Premier and they said:-
    The deadline for the simulations is now extended to the end of April.
    The cut off point for the AAT is December – How ever Premier Training need to accommodate all of the students and have everything marked, assessed and reported to the AAT by that time. They also have to account for any students that may fail or need additional questions – therefore the April deadline has been set in place.

    Hi Jane
    Surely if you can get unit 6 ECR passed you dont need to do the whole of level3 again.Havent you already done unit 5 FRA?
    I know that if I dont do the unit 6 sim and pass the exam this time i will have to do spreadsheets, prof ethics and cash management to complete.
