    Hi @lst84, and a warm welcome to the community!

    Well done on getting through your assessment, and I'm sorry to hear you found it so difficult. Unfortunately I'm sure many of our members will be able to relate. However, you're among friends here. Do feel free to ask any questions, or if you're just in need of a distraction in the meantime, you may be interested in our coffee lounge discussions
