    Just got a response from them and they are charging £30 per module, has anyone sat exams here before and if so does the fee also include cashing in? As I am retaking one exam and therefore would need it to be cashed for UCAS.

    Thanks!

    Cashing in doesn't cost the school anything (as long as it is done by 21 March), so it is probably included in the cost.

    Had a similar issue. I'm meant to be sitting an exam there in May. I sent my registration form and payment, and didn't hear anything. Then I e-mailed a few times and called and eventually they told me that AQA hadn't sent the entry certificates yet but not to worry. I still haven't got it through, but hopefully it's on the way. They seem fine from my dealings with them, just not very communicative.

    I rang them up around the first week of April and they confirmed that they have not yet received the exam entry of statement from some of the exam boards. We should receive our exam statement of entry this week however. I've asked my friends who are in different colleges if they've received theirs and it turns out that they haven't also so thousands of students are in the same position.

    Don't worry about it, all the best with the exams!

    Thanks so much for the info, I had been wondering if I should contact them again as the exam date's getting close, so that's good to know!

    Good luck with your exams!

    Same here, I was also worried about it. When I paid for my exams, I was told that i'd receive something official sometime in march which did not happen. There has also been a lack of communication as you said earlier, haven't received an update or anything although I am grateful that I have somewhere to do my exams. My main concern is that there might be a mistake on a module lol as I'm sitting quite a lot of exams.

    I think if I don't receive the statement of entry when the thursday post comes, I'll contact them again. Let me know when you receive yours.

    I know, I'm only sitting one module at the moment, but until I get something official I'm going to worry its the wrong one, lol! Haven't received anything yet. Like you said, if its not here by the end of the week I'll have to follow it up again. I'm going on holiday next week, and the exams only the week after I come back...

    Mine is the 17th, also with AQA and I've not had anything either. I guess AQA is just slow!

    If you don't receive it by Friday's post latest, I suggest you call them up to check. Don't worry though, I'm sure everything is fine. They receive the exam timetables very late that's what the problem is. I'm still waiting for my OCR timetable.

    My ocr timetable hasn't even arrived yet and my first ocr exam is on friday haha, I rang them last friday and they said they just received it so I should get it soon. I'm there on weds so I'll just consult them if it doesn't arrive by then.

    When I originally emailed, they replied straight away, but registration wasn't open. When I emailed again to register, they didn't get back to me and I had to call and email several more times. I think your best bet is to call them if you're getting no response.
