    1. Hi Helen,
      You need to be a member to access the exam, I just checked and it seems your membership has expired. You will need to renew your membership, and then login to the member’s area to access the exam resources.
      Thank you,

  2. We received an email saying our membership expired despite paying via autorenewal on 16 April. I have emailed you regarding this but received no reply.
