Thank you to JPMA for understanding and being so flexible after I needed to cancel the course for next week. A repeated thank you to Catherine and the rest of the staff, for all of your hard work and assistance in getting me through the modules and passing my oral exam. Your combined assistance these last two years has been invaluable and I look forward to returning to repeat the process when the time comes to do my Y2.
