2377 Questions and Answers:
What happens if I fail an assessment?
You will have a very good chance of passing your assessments at the first attempt as these courses are very thorough and our tutors are there to guide and support you. If it doesn’t go right for you on the day the main thing, is not to worry – it happens from time to time. Your tutor will review your score with you and you may just need to review your notes again and sit the exam a couple of days later. This is often all that’s needed. If you and your tutor feel you need a little more support we can agree some extra 1-1 training for you. Whatever happens we want you to enjoy our courses and come away with the qualification that you wanted. Our tutors and staff will always be there to support and advise you.
