Chaps I recently attempted and failed my main board. Obviously I'm gutted, but im not going to let it get me down and I'm in the process of trying to figure out what to do with my six month delay. I havn't had a meeting with my ACA as of yet but I dont think its worth counting working over my weaknesses as i feel that's a given! At the minute I seem to have three options: 1.Join the ta 2.Get a job 3.Volunteer Option 1 seems to carry the most benifits, get fit, get experience, get confident and get paid but would my papers clear in time? could i use the papers i submited for the aosb? Option 2 is pretty self explanitory! Option 3 I've made contact with the National trust for a stint of volunteer work and feel that this would benifit me the most in the long run with the AOSB second round. This seems to be a pretty round about away of asking for advice, what did guys who failed 1st time round here do? any tips or ideas of what I should be doing with my time? Thanks in advance Also does anyone know how strict they are with this six month delay? as in will March count as one of my months and could I try again in August and hopefully make the September intake?
