We are happy to grant access to the Practice Services area of the RIAS website to all Part 3 students in the weeks leading up to their examination(s). Over the last ten years, this benefit has been very popular. APEAS will circulate dedicated login details to Part 3 candidates six to eight weeks before the date of their examinations. The login details will allow candidates to browse practice notes and access the RIAS Standard Forms of Appointment.
