    Hi

    A little question: What happens if I don’t attend an exam for which I had registered? eg I register for 3 exams in Dec 13 and afterwards it turns out that I only had time two prepare for two of them. Accordingly, I just don’t appear at the third exam and want to have (another) try in Jun 14.

    Does this have any consequences? Of course, I will have to pay fees for all three exams in Dec 13 and additinal fee for the missed one in Jun 14. But is there a maximum numer of attempts I have to pass an exam (so that I would lose an attempt by doing what I described above)?

    Thanks
    Simon

    If you don’t show up for an exam it counts as a fail. There isn’t a max number of attempts at a paper per se, but there is a time limit of 10 years on passing them all.

    I’m sure I read that you are only classed as a fail if you have actual sight of the exam paper, in other words if you don’t even turn up, it’s not a fail and your next attempt is shown as the first attempt. Not sure where I read that but wherever it was, it was quite specific about the timing.

    Yes, you’re right. I’ve checked again and you’d be marked as absent for it rather than failing it.
