    I have, on the basis I think the FNST is too difficult for me at present, so opted to sit taxes instead.

    Also it depends how the college/ home study has sorted their timetable..

    I think as long as your competant, it doesnt really matter!

    You can sit them in any order you like, but you might want to check with your provider if they booked exams in or classes.

    Okay, thanks for the quick replies. I am going to order BTX then.

    I can't afford to pay for a learning provider this time around, so am going to buy the books and try it on my own. I was looking at going to a local college but I can't find the money at the moment, if it doesn't work out over the summer I might be able to enrol last minute on a course

    You might want to check that you're going to be able to purchase ICAS as a separate unit from somewhere before you decide. You need to be attached to a centre for this as you need an assessor to mark is as you go along. I know some distance learning providers aren't offering it as a unit on it's own anymore, you would need to purchase the whole of Level 4.

    Thanks Coojee I wasn't aware of that, I thought I would just have to purchase that one unit. Damn I'm halfway though Budgeting as well

    I'd be interested to know what you find out about this, whether anyone does offer it. I've a feeling that Premier are but they're charging lots for it.

    I think she said £180. She is also said if I found self studying difficult they would discoun the full course fee for whatever I had done
