Assessment

The exam is a multiple choice exam, consisting of:

  • 25 Questions
  • 60 minutes duration
  • Closed book (A copy of the glossary and a calculator are permitted in the exam).

The pass mark for the exam is 72% (18 marks out of 25). This programme is accredited by APMG International.

The e-learning course allows you to attempt simulated foundation exams, to gain feedback on areas that need further work. The programme also indicates when you are ready for the exam, based on performance in the simulated exam.

Sitting your exam

Once you have completed the online learning and believe you are ready to sit your exam, you will be able to book your online exam using your exam voucher that was emailed to you when you started the course. The voucher is valid for the duration of your registeration. You must complete your exam during your registration period.

We would recommend that you do not book your exam until you are able to achieve 80% or higher in the exam simulator to help secure your success.
