    Hi teacher!

    I would like to know when will be exactly the day of the exam of Module 7 (NI1) in the Holy week. In the webpage there are some dates, but are approximate (from 2th – 4th April). Some of us need to plan our holidays on that dates and will be necesary to know that date from now, to avoid higher fees on our travel bills.

    Best regards!

    Hi!

    Yes! Of course. I’m a That’s English Student of N.I.1. I have approved the module 6 on December, and now I have to go to the module 7 on April. The problem is that I will go on holidays on that dates and I want to know the exact day because I will go by airplane to visit my family. If I wait too much to buy my ticket will be more expensive later or no available tickets on that dates.

    Which day will be the module 7 exam in April?

    Thank you very much!
