Near Pass Advantage
- Learners that have passed 3 skills and have been awarded a Near Pass grade on one skill (up to 3 marks below the passing mark) are considered successful and have passed the exam.
- The Near Pass Advantage also applies to Refer candidates. When re-examined in 2 or more skills, a Near Pass grade is preserved if the candidate does not achieve a higher score.
- Refer candidates are eligible to re-sit for 5 exam periods. The first TWO are FREE of charge.
Any units that have been achieved in the examination series will be banked. One or more units that have been Referred can be re-taken by accessing a re-sit within a three-year period . Learners may resist the examination(s) in any future examination series within a three-year period. There is no limit to the number of times that a learner may resist the remaining units, although re-sit fees are applicable after the second attempt.
