For the last two years I have been studying towards the FGA (Fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain) and my final exams are this week.

Tuesday I have the two 3-hour written theory papers and on Thursday the dreaded 3-hour practical exam.

Pass mark is 70% and only about 45% of students pass so I'm a little nervous. It's supremely easy to screw up the practical - get 3 stones wrong and it's an automatic fail of the whole thing.

Anyway, I would appreciate dust for the right questions (ie what I know) in the theory papers and to not panic and over-think in the practical!

Results come out in August so will be chewing my nails for a good long time...

I don't know how to send dust, but I shall be hiding my thumbs in my palms for you for luck, like I always do... I go to bed very late, so your exam will start.

Good luck! And "good" questions!

Dust to you Pandora! I'm sure you will fly through it.

If it makes you feel any better, my next professional exam has a pass rate of 30% so that 45% is sounding mighty good to me right now!

Pandora, you're going to be one of the 45%. I hope it goes well for you and I feel for you on the waiting time for results - that's brutal. Good luck, and loads of dust.

rosetta, you'll be one of the 30%. When is your exam? Good luck and dust to you too.
