**AF4 Investment planning – Update on next available sitting date

In order to comply with government guidelines on social distancing, most approved venues capable of hosting paper-based exams are not currently operating.  The next sitting of AF4 will therefore be on the 24th June. This timing allows time for easing of lockdown measures and for venues to return to operation. We will contact learners when bookings are open and extend any AF4 enrolments that are due to expire before this date.

** J03 The tax and legal aspects of business and AF2 Business financial planning

Please note, the dates listed below are the final exam sittings for units J03 and AF2.

These units will be withdrawn after the Q2 2021 exam session. Any credits already achieved from these units will continue to count towards the completion requirements of the Diploma in Financial Planning and the Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning after the units’ withdrawal.  In addition, a resit opportunity is being arranged for the second half of 2021, which will only be available for current students who have previously failed the unit. Further details will be provided to these students.
