Big day

After just over a years worth of training my part 3 test is finally upon me! I take it on tuesday 12th and this is my first attempt.

I feel well prepared and fairly confident. Im sure I know a lot of what I should be doing and saying, but it's all about putting that into practice.

Any last bits of advice from anyone would be greatly appreciated!

Martin.

Part 2: Passed (19/10/07) 3 Minors
Part 3: (2nd) Passed (27/11/08) 4/4

Good Luck Mr B, am sure the lads and lasses at Arksey will have taught you well.

Good luck.

REMEMBER, once you introduce yourself after your examiner has given you the word picture, you are then talking to a pupil at either phase 1 or phase 2 level - NOT an examiner any more!!!!!

See it, say it, do it.

3 core comps.

Re: Big day

Unfortunately I failed. PST 1, got a 5/3. Plenty of positives though as the examiner was really impressed by me, and urged me to try again. I was too retrospective on the crossroads section, so I got a 3. Passed everything else though, including communication, q/a technique, etc.

Re: Big day

Unlucky, but a great effort by the sounds of things. Glad to hear that you have taken the positive view rather than the negative. Get some more training and WAIT until you are much better for your next attempt, don't be tempted to rush back in.

Re: Big day

It was Rebecca Tulip, she did my part 2 and i think she does all the PDI stuff at Barnsley most of the time. She's really nice, felt comfortable and she seems like she wants you to pass.

having a short break now anyway, a bit short on cash and go on holiday at the end of the month so will pick the training back up after that. As long as I put some more work in and come in a bit earlier with my prompting then Im confident I can pass.

Re: Big day

Just thought I'd update this post by letting anyone who's interested know that I've passed my part 3 today! I went back to Barnsley for it and got emerging for phase 1 and then crossing/ad. clearance/anticipation on phase 2. Felt it was quite hard to be honest, and didn't think I had passed! However, managed to pull off a 4/4.

Really pleased. Massive weight off my mind. I just know have to get my head around getting everything set up, starting with getting a car!!
