The questions you’ll be asked will be different to those in our previous closed book examinations. You will be presented with a scenario that describes a realistic workplace and situation.

Whatever format the question, it will relate to the syllabus and learning outcomes of your qualification.

To help you during the open book examination you can use resources such as notes, textbooks, learning materials and online resources. It’s important to remember that cutting and pasting from a textbook or online resource will not provide you with a good answer – you will need to really understand the topic and apply your understanding to the scenario given in the question paper.
