ACCA sitters need to book early
12 February 2019
PQ magazine was first altered to the problems with the plight of students trying to book the Oxford centre for the Applied Skills CBEs. In December students booking for the March sittings were told there were no places on offer and that they had to book Reading or London. However, Reading was soon full too, with nearly three weeks to go before the closing date for the standard exam entry deadline. A leading tutor told PQ: “This is a real problem for students in a large county not being able to sit their exams in their locality. Many are talking of deferring their studies until June, which makes a mockery of the flexibility of the four exam sittings.”
Another PQ who tried to book Reading on 7 January confirmed there was ‘no availability’ for March.
A Swindon PQ revealed that its not just Oxford and Reading that are proving popular centres. “I tried to book back in December for March, closet I could get to me (Swindon) was Coventry! I am half tempted to go for Coventry as I want to get the exam out of the way!”
And, CCSC Tuition told us that they had Stoke on Trent students having to travel as far as Leicester for the December sitting, with both Birmingham, and Manchester centres full.
