    How did you find the exam in terms of difficulty? I've heard lots of people have had problems with this one and I'm absolutely dreading it!

    To be honest I barely did any revision for it, which sounds terrible but when I came to book it, it was either the following week or two months later, and having to wait 6 weeks for the results, I thought I would just wing it haha!!
    To be honest it wasn’t too bad. Like you I had heard horror stories...
    saying that I’m booking the resit just in case!!
    How have you found the other exams?

    Haha! Good for you - I don't think I'd have been brave enough to wing it. :fearful: You'll have to let me know how you did when the results come through!

    I haven't found the others to be too bad to be honest. I'm just worried about not being prepared for the synoptic after all the horror stories. I've heard of people not having enough time to complete the Excel part of the assessment which panics me a bit as I've found I had plenty of time in the other exams.

    I will do! I calculated that I only need to get 76% in the synoptic to still get a distinction based on my other results sojust hoping I get there as I’ve managed above 95% in all the others so fingers crossed.
    Which exams are you still to sit?

    Hi, I believe based on your exam date of 15th April you would expect to receive your results on the Thursday, that being 23rd May, which is exactly 5 weeks after your exam siting. Normally its the synoptic which is only 6 weeks, or unless there are delays/AAT closures where results are released at later dates.

    I'm pretty sure this is right - I always sit my exams on a Friday and that is the timeframe in which I receive my results.

    Good Luck! :)
