I have just completed university but I have deferred 2 of my exams to August. My university term officially ends next friday. I have no income . Could I claim JSA as I am actively looking for a job. Should I explain to the JSA staff members that I have 2 exams to take but I am no longer in full time education. I have already studied for these exams so I need to simply sit the exam. This doesnt stop me from actively looking for a job.
I would really appreciate some advice for this pretty unique situation.
Are you still registered as a student with the University? If you are then you can't claim.
well, technically once the term finishes I am no longer a full time student, but I still have to take the papers. i will be registered for the exams but i am not too sure of whether I am officially a registered student at the university, as after graduation i shouldnt be.
I'd check with your university and ask them if they will consider you a student until you take the exams.
