Just had a text from DS saying that his was postponed til next week.

Could it be because of all the schools closed because of the flooding? Anyone know?

The BTEC online tests are taken when the centre requests them, so different centres at different times. To ensure students from different centres can't inform others of the questions the questions are taken from a bank, therefore every candidate will have different questions (apologies for repeating the word 'question'!)

The postponement will more than likely be due to a technical issue as the IT requirements are very particular and need setting up in a very concise manner

Oh, thank you very much, that probably explains it. He was a bit pissed off because he has mocks tomorrow and the next day, but has concentrating on revising for this BTec because it was a "proper" exam, and now he's got another week. But hey ho, so it goes.

Amazing that every candidate has different questions!
