Sitting for assessments


null Information Security - May 2022

All assessments will take place in a 24 hour window, in three-hour time blocks.

You will be allocated a three-hour time block (based on your geographical location) to download, write and submit your assessment. Your start time will be displayed on your VLE and on your Admission Notice which you will receive three-to-four weeks before your first assessment.

The local times will vary depending on the time zone, please check your time zone and local time carefully. If you have any questions about your time block allocation or if you wish to change your time block, please contact us immediately via the 'Ask a Question’ ( button in the Student Portal, using the 'Online Assessment’ category, to allow us sufficient time to make any changes.
