P3 Exam years

Hi All,


I am having a little difficulty with the P3 exam as I have found with my first mock.

As the study material is all manual I wanted to test my ability to use the software with the exam questions but because I started with the material for 2020/2021 I need that years software. I have tried downloading some free trial software for Brightpay and looked in to others but it doesn't seem like I can get anything but the current year. I had thought I would just be able to change the year date and it would just update but that doesn't seem to be possible.

It may well be that I am just missing something obvious or am getting tunnel vision which would be ideal as I am hoping for a quick solution.

What I would like to know is is there a way to use these free trials to complete a previous years payroll or alternatively how different would the exams for 2021/2022 be and should I just try to complete that one instead? I will need to be up to date when I am working with clients anyway after all.


Thanks in advance

Hello Daniel,

A bit late but I only just found this post - after sitting my exam today! I was in exactly the same position as you (books from 20-21 but software only for 21-22) but it was fine. Content is exactly the same, of course min wages and thresholds have changed but that is obvious.

Did you sit your exam and how did you get on at the end?
