Reasonable adjustments and re-sits

If candidates require reasonable adjustments in external assessment please complete the application for reasonable adjustments form (CR3) and send it to CPCAB at least eight weeks prior to external assessment.

Re-sits have now been integrated into the main external assessment dates. Send the names of candidates re-sitting to marina@cpcab.co.uk eight weeks prior to the next external assessment date.

Candidates may only re-sit if they are proficient in the internal assessment. Re-sits must take place at the next CPCAB specified external assessment date and will be charged as per our fees.

Candidates who are not proficient in their re-sit are not usually recommended to undertake a second re-sit. However in certain circumstances this may be re-considered.

*Centres must ensure they retain a sample of ICSK-L2 portfolios for external verification.
