The self assessments determine if you are progressing well enough through the course to attempt the final assessment. If the final assessment is not satisfactory it will be returned to you with feedback on how you can improve your score.
The timescales for receiving feedback from your tutor are dependent on how busy the accredited markers are. It can be between two and eight weeks for your marks to be received by the tutor and then passed on to you.

‘I have found this course excellent. I’ve not attempted online learning at this level before, and was slightly anxious that I wouldn’t have face to face contact with my tutor, thinking I may need it at Level 4 – These concerns were totally silly, as I had bespoke feedback, inclusive of emails, model examples, additionally help with specific questions I asked. The tutor was very personable, clear and responsive, I think what is really important to note, it that it wasn’t just template responses that didn’t really give any depth. Feedback was great and constructive. The learning platform was very easy to follow, I believe I had to contact helpdesk once when I first started, and they responded and assisted me almost immediately. …….Well, I passed with very strong marks, so I think that says more than what I can! – Many thanks, will definitely recommend’.
