Unit Assessments

During each course there are assessments with model answers which students can use to check their progress. Additionally in every unit there are assessments which are emailed or posted to Avtech for checking. Letters are sent by email in response and advice given as required.


It is the responsibility of students to register their intention to take exams with the administrator.

Exams are taken twice a year, in Spring and Autumn. These are offered at facilities in Bristol with its excellent motorway, rail and air connections. Overnight accommodation at a variety of prices is available nearby.

Before exams are taken, revision documents with model answers are provided so that students can establish which, if any, areas of their knowledge require extra attention.
