Thread: 90 day rule

  1. #1

    Default 90 day rule

    Hi all,

    Was just wondering if anyone could tell me, does the 90 day rule apply if you re-sit the same module but in a different category, i.e. if one were to fail a module to B2 level in May is it allowed that one could sit the same module to B1 in June?

    The 90 day rule is "clarified" here :

    http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/177/8355%20Section%20J_07.pdf

    I read it to mean that it applies to the module failed regardless of wether you sit a B1 or B2

    This is a very short sighted move by the CAA, think how much money they would make if people were allowed to fail the same modules more frequently than 90 days.....


    In the good ole land of the 'Salad Dodgers' (USA) when you sit the multi guess test, the results are waiting for you as soon as you leave the exam room, in the highly unlikely event you fail the exam (as many Americans do) you can resit the same exam one hour later, after you've been signed off as having an hours "tuition" in the subject, and more importantly given the "instructor" the $70 "tuition fee"......

    pabarret.....my understanding is that you can re-sit the module provided it is not in the same category (i.e B1) within the 90 days. The CAA may be more strict on this and just ban you from the whole module regardless of which was sat...i.e. A, b1 or B2 exam. The IAA tho, consider each as separate. If your stuck on the matter tho, give Ger Lawlor a shout in the IAA.
    By the way, Which Modules do you have left?
    I have been let back on for now !

    I have 5, 6 and 2 left for b2. I was wondering this as I have just gotten 73 in b1 mod 6 and was wondering if i could repeat it to the lower b2 level before the 90 days. many thanks celticmech for your help.

    how strict is the 90 day rule? for example i took and failed a module on Jan 14,can I re-sit March 11 (84 days) or do I have to wait till April?
