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.
