Have you checked the expiry date of your module credits?

Remember that module credits expire after 6 years unless you validate them by passing the relevant exam at that level. In other words, if you have obtained all Foundation Course module credits, you will need to pass the Certificate Interpretation Exam within six years of completing Module Three in order to validate these credits. The same system of validation applies to the intermediate and advanced levels.

If you have questions about the validation of your credits please contact Lindsay Gladstone, Head of Exams, at exams@astrology.org.uk.
