    I was wondering if anyone else saw/heard about the changes to the professional skills test?

    I got an email from my university stating; there is no limit on the amount of times you can take the tests (previously used to be 3 and the locked out for 2 years)
    And there is no lock out!!

    So basically three attempts for free and 4th is when you begin to pay, with no restriction on the amount of times you can take the tests

    Anyone else heard this?

    Yes it was brought up in a university seminar (I'm a BEd student).

    From the DfE:

    In February 2018, changes to the arrangements for the skills tests were announced.

    • Candidates will have unlimited attempts to achieve a test pass.
    • The 2-year lockout period will be removed; candidates previously locked out will be able to book tests for both subjects.
    • All candidates will be able to book 3 tests per subject, free of charge. A charge will be applied from the fourth test attempt per subject.

    If you have paid for and taken a second or third attempt at a test on or after 24 October 2017 and before 14 February 2018, you will automatically receive a refund for the cost of your test.
