Progress onto the next level without a delay waiting for results
We are pleased to confirm that, with immediate effect, you can book assessments at the next qualification level without having to wait for results from the preceding level or passing all units. For example, if you submit your final units at Level 4 in March, you can book Level 5 assessments in June prior to receiving the results from your March Level 4 units.
We were aware that results coming out after the subsequent booking window had closed was causing inconvenience to people anxious to progress. Having considered how we could rectify this whilst still meeting our service commitments, we found relaxing the booking criteria offered the best solution.
We would like to stress that you should, ideally, have taken the majority of assessments for the preceding qualification's units before booking onto the next level. This will ensure you have the greatest chance of success as each Diploma builds on the expertise you develop in the preceding programme.
We are constantly striving to improve our service and we hope that you will welcome this news.
