EXAMS, ASSESSMENTS & LEARNING MATERIAL

All the modules in your course are assessed via a combination of assignments during the course and/or exams at the end of each module. All exams and assignments are set, marked and moderated by the CTH in the UK.

Register for courses and exams

At the same time that you register for courses with your chosen college, you will need to register with ITHSA for the assessments that take place at the end of every module.  Everyone studing the Level 4 or higher qualification is required to register as a Student Member of the CTH too. Your college will advise you on programmes, workload and fees and help you with all the necessary forms.

Once registered with ITHSA you will receive a welcome pack from the ITHSA which includes your student assessment pack and learning toolkit.

When your CTH membership is approved, you will be sent a letter confirming that you are a student member, as well as a CTH membership card which displays your unique registration number.

You will need to quote your registration number in any correspondence with the ITHSA and it must appear on all your assessment work and exams.

Learning toolkits

When you register for a Management Programme, you will be sent a learning toolkit.  This contains a huge range of resources to help you study and do well in your course.

Your Learning Toolkit is included in your assessment fees and will contain about 600 pages of handouts, case studies, exam guides and revision materials.

Exam / assessment dates

There are four rounds of exams every year – in February, June, September and December.

Some assignments and exams may be arranged on demand. Please speak to your training provider or contact the ITHSA for more information.

Assessment, assignments and exams

Depending on which course you are studying, you will be required to submit various assignments.  The assignments could be in different formats, either research based or practical.

You will be assessed on your research, presentation and self-study abilities as well as your understanding of the course material.

At the end of most ITHSA programmes, students will sit final exams or submit final assignments.  These are marked by the CTH in the UK, who awards the certicates to you.

Exam results and certificates

Exam results are released to the colleges around 8 weeks after the final assessments.  You can check these dates on the timetable below.

You will be awarded one of four grades for each subject you write: Distinction, Merit, Pass or Fail. If you get a Distinction, Merit or Pass, you’ll receive a formal certificate from the CTH. Actual percentages are not provided.

If you have been granted an exemption for an entire qualification, no certificate will be awarded. (Contact us to find out more about exemptions for prior studies or work experience.)
