Answers will be marked according to accuracy, completeness and relevance.

Test instructions

Read each question very carefully – There may be questions asking you to select the option that is incorrect and/or more than one answer to a question.

Answer each question – Do not leave any question blank as you will not be awarded any marks; however, you have a 1 in 4 chance of answering correctly if you at least attempt the question.

Work by process of elimination – If you are unsure of the answer to a question, first rule out any options that you know are definitely (or at least mostly sure) are incorrect and then select which you think is correct.

Please note, your results for the Final Assessment are automatically sent across to your tutors and they will be aware of your grades.
