The calculation of the required number of classes is not correct. Call the CBR but to check this. The overall calculation that they will give to is age 20 + + classes for boys and 30 for girls. Students who obtain the license in 28 lessons of 60 minutes are rare. Read for example, The report of the SWOV once again.
