( Reza Khaleghi, 11/03/2017 ) Q:

Can the project/exam be completed and submitted online? Or will I be require to attend a test center? Many thanks.

( 13/03/2017 ) A:

Hello Reza and thank you for your question.

The exam is done at a time and place that is convenient to you. We ask that you assign someone working in a professional capacity, that is not related to you as an adjudicator and we will send a written sealed exam paper to them, who will give it to you to open at the time and place you specify when applying for the exam. After your 1.5 hours exam under normal exam conditions, he or she will post the exam paper to us for marking. I understand that there is an opportunity to cheat. However, because your assignment grades are also taken into consideration for your final mark, there is very little to be gained by doing so and therefore the vast majority of students take the exam in the spirit of trust, that is intended.

The final project option takes the form of an assignment of around 2,500 words, set by your tutor and submitted to them for marking, in the same way that you will submit your assignments after each lesson.

I hope that this helps.
