Apply for exam counselling

We offer an exam counselling service to those students where the examination in question is the last one required to qualify either as an Associate or a Fellow. This will help you to help you understand:
  • why you failed a paper, and how you can improve your performance in that subject
  • how you can improve your exam technique generally.

The exam counselling service is not available for Core Principles (CS, CM and CB exams).

Exam counselling will not give you:

  • access to the detailed breakdown of your marks, or access to your exam script
  • comparisons with other students who passed the exam.

There are two different counselling arrangements available

  • a comprehensive written report with comments on your performance and advice to help you in your next attempt at the exam
  • a comprehensive written report with a follow up telephone call with a counsellor - you will be required to take the call within 1 month of receiving your report or you will lose this opportunity

Read the Exam counselling information note for full details about the counselling service.

The closing date to request exam counselling following the April 2020 exams was Friday 14 August, and we cannot accept further applications.
