Commiserations guys, just imagine how easy it will be at your next sitting given that you already have all those hours up your sleeve. There are many posts all over this site about people resitting levels and being glad they did.

The L1 analysis for June suggests that in Band 10 you were only 8-11 questions away from passing, got to be worth another try?

Good luck with whatever you choose.
