Your examiner should have told you.

I thought FRTOL was needed to operate/transmit on the radios and therefore essential? At least compared to things like IR(R) or Night Rating where one can simply limit to flying VFR during daylight hours, opting out of radio communications operation would be flying with a handicap.Some of us are.
