Another example: 15% of your Canolradd mark comes from a piece of coursework you have to do in advance of the exam. Deadline in April.
I had no idea, but found out about this accidentally last week.
Why no mention of the coursework when you register for the exam?
Why no email reminder of the upcoming deadline from the Welsh learning centre?

Nothing on the WJEC website.
Nothing in the booklet except "ask your centre".
Nothing on the Learn Welsh/Dysgu Cymraeg website.

But they don't take credit cards...or give change. They need the exact money. I had to walk to the nearest cash machine, get money out, then buy something to get some change!
