Your assessment must be completed in one sitting. If you close your assessment prior to completion you will have to start again. You cannot pick up from where you left off.

If you complete your assessment successfully you will receive a copy of your results by email. If you do not complete your assessment successfully you will be redirected back to this page. You will then need to complete a ‘SECOND ATTEMPT’  at your assessment.

If you are redirected back to this page after you have completed your assessment, download the SECOND  ATTEMPT using the link below and correctly answer the questions that you failed in your first attempt. You do not have to complete all the questions – only the questions that you did not answer  correctly in your first attempt. It is important that you email your SECOND  ATTEMPT to the correct email address so that your assessment attempt can be matched and verified as complete.
