Please note that the due date for the level 1 exams is indicated below as 30 November 2011 whereas the Board Notice stipulates 31 December. Inseta explained this as follows:

“”You are right, but the FSB is saying that people will have to complete the exams by November 2011 in order for them to be marked and recorded before 31st December. Hence the date I put in the notice.”
