Students do not have to complete one level before progressing to the next but will not receive
any certificates until they have completed all the required elements of a level. We will assist
students to compile a programme of study to allow them to complete their qualifications in
the shortest possible time but we advise and encourage them to work at a pace they are
In the event of a student failing an exam they will be offered these alternatives: (In all cases
the student must make their own exam entry and pay the exam fee to CIPS):
- To resit the exam at the next available date.
- To attend free of charge the next time we hold the module
- In the event of the student failing the exam at the second attempt they will be charged at
the full rate to take the course again (see terms and conditions).
