Students have to submit a Portfolio of Evidence (PoE) which will include formative activities and evaluations, as well as one summative assessment (final exam). PoE assessments include formative/interim assessment of activities (assignments) and evaluations (tests) that count 30% towards the total mark. The Summative Assignment (final exam) will add to the remaining 70% of your marks. The PoE is a file with all your assignments and tests that proves whether you are competent against the relative outcomes.
Once you have successfully completed your PoE and exams, you will be awarded with the National Certificate: Bookkeeping by FASSET.
ICB will also send you a Programme Completion Certificate.
