I'd like to share an experience I've had with the London Institute of Linguists Diptrans exam and find out what other translators' opinons are on this issue.
With two passes under my belt, I sat the final paper of the exam in January in Madrid. I took the exam result to appeal (which cost £50) because the conditions under which I sat the exam were unfair. It was highly unlikely I would achieve a pass based on what happened.
I should have received a response from the Institute by July 30th. I finally received a letter yesterday, September 10th, telling me my appeal had been declined and giving no explanation or justification as to why.
This is an expensive exam and I am now very doubtful as to whether I would choose to re-sit again knowing that if something unfair happens in the exam I will not receive a refund.
Do any other translators have similar experiences or opinions they would like to share about this exam?
