Foundation Exam 08-09-2016

4 Students sat the Foundation Exam with SBARC on 8 September 2016

4 students from a mix of backgrounds sat their Foundation Exam with SBARC. Some had studied with us through the full course whilst others had self studied and only undertook the practical assessments and exam with us.

As a result of their superb preparation, all 4 students received an indicative pass mark with 2 students scoring an indicative 24/26 or better. We are confident that these marks will be upheld when the papers are subjected to the Optical Marking process at RSGB HQ and look forward to informing everyone of the new callsigns.
