    Could I just confirm something. We have some students who are going to sit their Maths FS L2 qualification. You are allowed to sit the exam in a 5-day window. Is it the case that some students can sit the exam on Monday and others can sit the exam on Thursday. This seems to be what is being suggested. If so - how do you avoid students knowing in advance the questions. Am I interpreting this wrong. Any help appreciated.
