Each candidate is required to undertake an externally set multiple-choice question paper. This paper assesses knowledge aspects of this qualification sampled from the mandatory unit of the qualification, and consists of 30 questions. The assessment is administered by centre staff under examination conditions and will last for 40 minutes, which includes provision for candidate reading time. Questions are set and assessed by NCFE and focus on the knowledge and understanding requirements of this qualification. The pass mark for the multiple-choice question paper is 66%. Candidates will be issued with one of the following grades:
¨ Achieved – candidates achieved higher than the set 66% pass mark
¨ Within 10% of achieving – candidates achieved between 57% and 66% but did not meet the required 66% pass mark
¨ Not Achieved – candidates achieved less than 57% so did not achieve.
Candidate results are displayed on-screen at the end of the assessment and will be confirmed the next day by NCFE.
