During the Level 4 qualification you will be required to take six examinations. Five of these will be computer-based assessments and there will be a final synoptic examination which will be held at an examination centre. Synoptic examinations have been introduced recently as part of the new accounting syllabus and it is used as a method of testing your knowledge across all units in the course. Our programme has been developed around these synoptic assessments so you will be fully prepared before you are expected to sit the examination. Students will work with their tutor to decide when you are ready to sit your exam. There is no pressure to complete your examinations, students are encouraged to only sit them when they feel ready.
