    Me and my friends have been going back and forth about this since our results came out, and unfortunately no-one has been able to give a good answer.

    I have finished the complete IAL Course for Mathematics, and AS course for Physics and Chemistry. Someone in my group said that if I didn't finish the IAL complete course for Physics and Chemistry (that means papers 4, 5, and 6) within one year of taking the exams (so before June of 2017), the results of this exam will be voided and I'll have to take the whole series again.

    At first, I was skeptical about this, but then the friend told me that it came from the Pearson Website. When I searched, nothing came out.

    So who's right? Should I scramble for the test, or can I take my time?

    Generally you can spread the exams out for the life of the specification, so you could have started in 2008 and still be taking exams but the specifications are changing and for UK students 2017 will be the last chance to take the current Physics and Chemistry specifications. Don't honestly know if the rules are the same for International specifications.
