    child benefit ??

    Hi all I know this isn,t a disability question but thought I ask on the off chance someone might know
    got a form from HMRC and child benefit as my lad finishes school this year to ask if he's going on to further education he is going on to college to do A-levels which is approved for the benefit purpose

    but it asks when he will be taking his final exams and we have no clue other than it's a 2 year course anyone filled one of these out ? can't face phoning them and panic about getting anything official wrong
    anyone know what month college courses end ?

    thanks xx

    I think the best bet is to ring them I know by previous experiences that they usually just stop the CB unless you have informed them your child is staying on at school or FE just explain it is a 2 year course which starts 2014 ends 2016 good luck :-)

    I would phone the college to ask when the term ends. I know for universities they usually start in September and end in the beginning of June.

    As for college I assume it is a similar schedule but my first port of call would be the college. You might even find term dates online on their website.

    Term dates will be on the college's web site and are usually stated for the next 2 or 3 years

    If he's going on to take A levels, the exams are usually in May and the beginning of June. Exact dates for the exams he's taking won't yet be available.

    I endorse the advice of others to talk to the college. If you don't get a clear answer, I'd put "2 year course, expecting to take final exams in May/June 2016".
