    that cost of £114 will be for just the exam. Manchester College will be quoting you a price for the course and the exam.

    This is more than likely, though it's always best to check with the college to be sure.

    Just give them a ring, they'll be more than happy to help I'm sure.

    Yes it wil be for the whole course,and that £320 should not include exam fees at all.

    Exam fees, if you study at college there is a half price offer for exams
    so you pay £64 for each exam you want to take.

    You would need to complete the college course first to qualify for a £64 exam.

    I did this subject at college so i recognise the figures,mine was a bit more than £320, the course was £365
    and there was another 2 x £64 to pay for 2 exams.

    Total cost of college course and exams for me=£493

    The way to look at the A+ normally is to separate the college from the exam.These are 2 different things.

    The college is there to teach you,and prepare you for an exam,it is not especially set up as a test centre or exam centre.

    Yes some people will take the exam in a college,but plenty of students will not,which is why there are test centres which have nothing to do with the college but will let you sit an A+ exam.

    I sat both my exams in a test centre, quite a distance from the college that i studied the A+ at,infact i took my last a+ exam 15 months after my college course had ended.
    These figures show you how the college and the exam are two separate subjects.

    This appears to be the course,note it says at the end information about the exams
    "What will I be able to do after I've completed this course?
    On completion of this course, you may take the CompTIA (220-601) and (220-602) exams"

    Also stated is that it is a 15 week course,one night attendance per week,some colleges do 2 nights a week for 16 weeks,so may'be that is why yours is cheaper.It's also a Cisco course which mine was too.
