Booking your exam

How to know when you're ready to take your exam and what to do when you are...

How do you know if I'm ready for my exam?

In your training, you'll find that each module has a small test at the end which we advise you complete in order to move on to the next module. When you get to the end of a course within your training package, there's also another opportunity to practice, named the "test prep practice exam".

If you've got to this point in your training, well done, you're nearly there. The best indicator of whether you're ready for your final exam is the score you get in the test prep. If you're taking a business related course, you'll need to be achieving a score of at least 80%, and if you're taking an IT course, your score will need to be at least 90%. Also any of the test scores from your modules you completed over 2 months ago will have to be brought up to date simply by retaking the test.

When you've reached the point where you're scoring above 80% for project management courses or 90% for IT courses, and all of your module test scores are up to date, drop us a line to [email protected] and the team will do a quick health check to make sure, not only that you've finished all of your training, but that you can confidently expect to pass that exam first time. They'll then guide you through the exam booking process - also detailed below - so you'll have everything you need to gain your new certification ready to take the job market by storm.

If any of this sounds daunting, don't worry, StudentCare™ is always happy to help with course guidance, revision tips and words of wisdom, so don't be afraid to get in touch for some friendly advice along the way.

You're in safe hands, our StudentCare™ team have helped hundreds of people like you pass their exams.
