After all Unit Tests have been completed, the student can take the Final Exam which will represent the remaining 60% of the final grade.

Best of all, no more waiting for an examination session or traveling to an exam center. Students can take the Unit Tests and Final Exam when they’re ready, from a comfortable home environment!
