How much of the course will you have missed?

If your confident in catching up on the missed study go for it.
And an extra 50 aint too bad compared to paying for 2 seperate quals that replace it.
Cant remember what i paid for my 2391 , less than £300 though ( back in 98 :)

City and Guilds enforce cut-off times for enrolment to this course. Late registrations results in fees for the centre, which are naturally passed on.

You should maybe look around though, the 2391 is running till the end of the year so some training centres near you should be doing it.

thanks alot chaps, i have missed 3 saturdays i think the course is over 6 saturdays, but the tutor said he is willing for me to do it for 5 days solid so ill have to take a week of work, but i think it will be worth it if i pass, i already have the 2392 but from what ive been told that isnt even in the same ball park as the 2391!!, ill just have to keep my head in the books all week and keep my fingers crossed, thanks alot for all your advice!

If you have missed 1/2 of the course you will find it very difficult and should give it a miss unless you have a good understanding of testing prior to starting. If you can do the 5 days go for it as this is the normal length of the course. The test is normally 2-3 weeks after the course end. You will have to hit the books to give yourself a good chance of passing

Good luck

Good luck but having missed half the lessons is a big ask to be honest , didnt realise you missed that much.

You'll never know if it was a good idea unless you try it!!

Hopefully your tutor wlll be able to provide you with some course material. If there is none, pm me your email address and I can send you a student or tutors course book.
