Simply select the account which you used when you registered, sign in with your own account details and this will log you into your account.  Please note the College is unable to reset any passwords, as the system uses authentication with your own account.  The College is now unable to revoke access, as an element stays behind in the background table for 40 days and therefore won’t allow you to re-register.  Please e-mail [email protected] and we can advise which of your accounts you used to register
