Sounds correct there, remember to sleeve the appropriate cores correctly, and also check that they have not asked you to do it differently on the specification!
However I would expect that they would use this method.
If it is singles in conduit then no need for sleeving, just use the correct singles.

Morning Rich, thats how they want it wired yes. Its in dado trunking as far as im aware! Thank you
 
Evening, Matthew on the day of your exam, be sure to check the spec for the install.

When I did my AM2, the lighting circuits were wired in:
6242Y = 2 core + cpc
6243Y = 3 Core + cpc

I'm not sure if the AM2 changes across the UK so it might well be singles. Just a heads up :)

Did this method work i'm struggling to find anything on this way of doing it?
 
2 core + cpc from the D.B to the first 2 way switch
3 core + cpc to the intermediate switch
3 core + cpc to from the intermediate switch to the last 2 way switch
2 core + cpc from the last 2 way switch to the light
