In shock, failed L3 band 9 - L3 resitters- how many more hours to pass?!
So, I was completely shocked today to find out that I failed L3 band 9, after sailing through L1 and L2 no probs. I really thought that I'd put in enough hours (started late Nov 16) and after 9 full practice exams I was genuinely gutted that I hadn't quite made it. Especially that my bands were not much different to people who passed.
To be fair, I am 39 years old (female), work full time and have 2 kids age 10 and 5, so perhaps not ideal conditions for study. The worst part of this is feeling like I have neglected THEM for 6 months, I told them to leave the room and give me peace etc, only to find out today that it was all for nothing.
I've never failed anything academic before so its quite a blow and I can't help feeling worse abut it knowing I've ruined THEIR year too, not just my own. I have had my work experience signed off and have joined the institute but is it REALLY worth me doing this stupid exam again?
If you failed L3, and decided to resit, please let me know how many hours you studied the following year and whether you passed or failed. I'm not sure I can face all this again but at the same time I know I am so close!
