The ICB academic year runs from 1 April to 31 March every year. This means your last exam on your existing study material will be in April of each year, and the first exam on the new study material will be from June onwards.
Pass Assured Guarantee
To qualify for your Pass Assured Promise, you need to have submitted Test 1 and Test 2 (from your POE) for review (not marking). You should also have attempted your final exam within 6 months of having received your study material.
If you are unsuccessful in your exam, you will receive 3 months of additional tutor support and you can re-submit Test 1 and 2 for review.
