  • HI,

    You're not alone. I plan to sit my final accountancy exams next June. Fortunately with the extension of maternity pay to 39 weeks paid it will make it much easier. I plan to be able to put lo into nursey/ with gran at least one day so I can use the time to study.

    Hope all goes well for you! Good luck.
