IMPORTANT INFORMATION posted 20.3.20

As a result of the Government’s announcements this week, it will not now be possible to run the examinations scheduled for May and June in the way we had planned. We are working closely with the regulator to understand what options might be open to us and we will continue to keep you informed once we have a fuller picture.

Any queries should be directed to enquiries@aim-group.org.uk

This page will be updated on a regular basis as new exam dates are released.
