Assessments

Student ABE

Each unit in an ABE qualification is assessed either by an examination or an assignment.  Our short awards operate on a six-week turnaround.  Assessments for the rest of ABE's qualifications take place during December and June, plus there is an additional assignments-only window in March. 

How to book

To book an assessment you first need to be registered with us through an ABE centre. Assessments can then be booked either by your ABE study centre on your behalf or directly with us when you feel ready. There is no limit to the number of assessments you can book, you can take as much or as little time as you need to achieve your qualification, but we do not recommend taking more than five units in any one session.

Don't forget to use the resources in the Portal. These are designed to help you and, maybe, you will join our Top Paper Award winners (see Grades and Awards)! We wish you every success!

You can see our standard assessment fees in the Study with Us section.

After booking

Upon receipt of your booking form and payment it can take up to 5 working days to process. Once processed you will receive a notification slip via email.

If you do not receive a notification slip or the information received is not correct please email us
