7. The Actual Test
If you are not feeling confident having sat the real exam and failed then there are a couple of options, retake it as soon as you can if you were within a mark or two of passing and keep practising up until the exam. If you were quite a few marks away then it is unlikely you will be able to simply rebook and pass again. Try to determine which areas you are finding most difficult and focus on these. If you are struggling with the content and would like some additional support then an expert QTS tutor may be a good option as these tutors have pass rates above 95% and can quickly help you improve and get to that pass mark.
