How many attempts do I have?
You can pass your 13 subjects in up to 6 sessions. Each subject can only be attempted 4 times. If you fail more than 4 times, you will have to start your exams from scratch.
How long do I have to pass my subjects?
From the moment you pass your first exam, an 18-month countdown begins. You therefore have 18 months to pass your exams.
