Yes, a formal exam follows each of the modules required which is marked externally by the SQA.
There are a total of 6 exam papers (5 if you are only completing the course in packages). Each paper is multiple-choice with four possible answers.
The exams are divided into the following categories:
|Number of Questions||Pass Mark|
|Classes 2, 3, 6, 8||36||25|
|Classes 4, 5, 9||24||17|
You are credited with any exam pass that you achieve for up to 16 weeks following your course, i.e. if you pass 5 out of 6 exams, you would only have to return to re-sit the failed exam.
