Not got the results you were hoping for?
Nobody likes to fail. If you fail the assessment it is only natural that you will feel disappointed. However, help is at hand. Take a look at our Failed the assessment fact sheet. This fact sheet covers topics such as re-marks, appeals and additional 6 month placements. You could also get in touch with us to discuss the other support we are able to provide – we’re only a phone call or email away.
