I did it! At last!
Off with my panel of 20 images and my printed book (working profile), I made the 6 hour round trip to the BIPP head offices for my assessment. I am delighted to say I passed, or made the grade; or whatever the term should be.

I really am delighted, as anyone can atest to who has gone for these exams, it really is a lot of work that goes into the panel.
