When to sit the BCAT for Sep 2022 Bar Course entry?

I am beginning the ICCA Bar Course in September 2022. On the BSB website it says that "this year's" deadline to apply for the BCAT is March 21st and deadline to sit is March 28th. But do they open up a new "year" in May to be sat in the summer?

Just looking for general advice and wondering when people will be sitting the exam.

Thanks!

Does anyone know when the LSB decision will come out formally and the BCAT will no longer be a requirement as currently it is being advised to take the exam still for September entry.

i think the exam has just opened again but whether you should sit it for september is still confusing
The BCAT page can be found here: https://home.pearsonvue.com/bsb

It states that if you are due to start the Bar course in July, that this is still a requirement for that course. For September, it states to wait and see as despite the BSB's decision and announcement to drop it, they still need approval from the Legal Services Board (LSB) to do so.

I'll delete my previous post in case it causes any confusion but will put the link regarding the announcement here: https://www.legalcheek.com/2022/04/bsb-ditches-bar-aptitude-test/

Hope that helps!
