Can you tell me more about the final exam?

At the end of each lesson, you’ll complete a multiple choice quiz consisting of 10 questions. You need to score 100% in each quiz to unlock the next lesson. These quizzes don’t form part of your final assessment and you can use course notes and any other resources you like.

The final exam works slightly differently. A certified proctor will supervise your exam remotely via a webcam on your computer – there’s no need to book in advance as sessions are available 7 days/week.

The final exam consists of 50 questions and you must score at least 70% to pass. You’ll have 60 minutes to complete the test and it’s a closed-book assessment. This means that you can’t refer to the course, course notes or any other resources.

If you don’t pass the exam during your first try, no problem. Simply purchase a re-attempt for $24.95 - but be sure that you complete your course, including your final exam, before your course expiry date.

Once you’ve passed the exam, you can download your certificate immediately.
