You need to know about ICB exams if you want to study with TWP Academy. All our courses are accredited by the ICB, which means that you need to write an exam with the ICB before you earn your qualification.
If you understand how the whole thing works before you start studying you will be prepared, which reduces stress tremendously. So read through these pages carefully.
ICB exams are the main way in which the ICB will know that you are competent in a specific subject so that you can pass your qualification. The final exam counts for 70% of the final mark, with only 30% being allocated to work that you complete by yourself at home. So you can see that a large emphasis is placed on the ICB exam.
When you first book your exam with the ICB they will send you your Portfolio of Evidence about 3 to 4 weeks later. This is a folder that contains many forms and information, as well as the assessments and activities you need to do at home. You can check if your details are correct, and work your way through all the coursework. You then take these work along to the final exam, and hand it in with the exam paper once you have completed.

Recognition of Prior Learning
Did you know that you can sometimes be exempted from certain subjects in your course due to previous courses you have studied, or from your work experience? This will mean that for every subject you are exempted from you will not have to write the exam for that subject. Instead you will be given full credits for that subject without doing any coursework or exams.
This is called recognition of prior learning, and it can save you allot of time in your course if you take the time to apply properly. Remember that only the ICB can issue this recognition of prior learning, so this is not approved until they have officially said yes.
