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.
