HOW DOES CBE WORK?

1. Students locate a CBE centre in their area offering the exam(s) they wish to sit


2. When arranging bookings with the CBE centre, the exams staff will check the identity of the students against their ACCA registration cards and will also check the eligibility of the students to take the exam(s) they wish to sit.


3. Students pay The British College (CBE centre) directly for the exams.


4. Prior to the exam, The British College (CBE centre) will set up time-restricted access to the exams for the students. The exam must be sat on the scheduled date and at the scheduled time.


5. On the day of the exam, the students' identity is checked by the invigilator, further validity and eligibility checks are carried out, and then the invigilator will read out the CBE exam instructions.


6. Upon completion of the exam, the final percentage score is calculated and displayed on screen.


7. Students are required to print two copies of the Provisional Result Notification; one copy is retained by the CBE centre and the other is for the students' records.
