Assessments info for centres

Each unit in an ABE qualification is assessed by an examination or an assignment.  Assessments for our Business Management-based portfolio take place during December and June, plus there is an additional assignments-only window in March.   There are a series of deadlines for each assessment session and accredited centres are supported by regular reminders to ensure there is plenty of time to prepare:

Examinations are a three-hour duration and, generally, hosted in-centre.

ABE's shorter Awards are assessed by assignment and operate on a rolling six week turn around from submission.

Please note:  assignments must be received by the assignment deadline.  We will not accept late assignments except under very exceptional circumstances, at the discretion of ABE, in which case there will be an additional charge to cover our incurred costs.
