Each test has a minimum passing score which you must achieve before you can move onto the next module in the course. You can take each module test as many times as you like until you pass, at which point your passing results are recorded in our national database and contribute towards your final score.

Your overall passing grade is calculated as you move through the course and complete each module test. Your final score is an overall average grade of all 18 module tests. Your final grade is then printed onto your pass certificate.

There are no time-limits for completing individual modules and no time limits for taking the tests. However, once you decide to start a test it must be completed in one go. You cannot stop a test midway through and return to it later, like you can with the course content. You can view your course history and your current overall grade at anytime during the course.

We’re positive you’ll find it a delightful, relaxing and effective way of learning.
