This workshop is designed to prepare delegates for the Solutions Development Oral Examination. Success in the Oral Examination leads to the award of the BCS Diploma in Solution Development.
Delegates should have passed each of 4 written examinations as specified by the BCS requirements for the Solutions Development Diploma scheme. Ideally delegates will have registered to take the Oral Examination. Please see www.qa.com/BCSDSDCERT more information on modular certificates.
Photographic identification for exams and BCS reasonable adjustments policy
If you are taking a BCS exam you must bring photographic identification (passport, driving license or student card) as it is a BCS requirement to produce it for the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification will result in a candidate not being able to sit the exam.
The BCS also allow additional time for candidates who have a disability or whose business language is not English. Candidates can request this additonal time in line with the BCS reasonable adjustments policy. If you believe you qualify please contact our examination administration team as early as possible. At least three weeks notice will be required for processing and delegates failing to advise QA and provide proof if requested by the BCS may not be allowed the additional support offered via this BCS policy.
For any questions about what form of identification is acceptable, or for more information about the BCS reasonable adjustments policy, please contact your Account Manager or the QA Examination Administration team on 44 (0)1793 696273.
