Master200gt Orals

Hi all I Just passed my Master200gt oral exam yesterday, me and Will75 actually went to UKSA Prep course on the same date, the course is very good I also did an extra day private tuition 1-2-1 with the instructor a couple of days ago to keep it all fresh in my head. I was very lucky to get a space at the Southampton office as Will said they are booked up until January!!
