Level 4 Diploma progression
Access arrangements
(Reasonable Adjustments)
and replaced by the Management of Information Systems (MIS) pathway.
All BIS passes remain valid and can be used in place of MIS passes to

transition arrangements on the Members Area for further information.
• Students must pass at least two Level 4 Diploma units by ABE examination
before progressing to the Level 5 Diploma. However, all four units must be
passed (as well as all eight Level 5 Diploma units) before the Level 5 Diploma
can be awarded.
Level 5 Diploma progression
• Students must pass at least six units in the Level 5 Diploma to proceed to
the Level 6 Diploma. However, all eight units in the Level 5 Diploma must
be passed (as well as all five Level 6 Diploma units) before the Level 6
Diploma can be awarded.

Unit (subject) entries
• There is no limit to the number of units for which candidates may enter.
Do not enter for units whose times clash, as the timetable cannot be

Notification slip
• A notification slip will be sent to all candidates approximately two weeks

below) or request a copy from the ABE office at least one week before the
start of the examinations.
You must take the notification slip to every examination you sit.
Transfers

June 2015, providing the transfer request with £15 transfer fee is
received by Monday 10 November 2014. The transfer cannot apply to any
unit(s) other than the original entry.
• To meet its commitment to equality of opportunity, ABE will, as far as is
reasonably practical, endeavour to ensure access for people of all abilities,
irrespective of physical capacity, in order that all candidates receive the
same level of service and opportunity. Applicants for Reasonable Adjustments
should email the Quality and Assessment Department at [email protected]
no later than Friday 3 October 2014, the closing date for examination

ABE Examination Regulations
(Conduct during the Examinations)
• Candidates must take their national Passport or National Identity Card or

or any other person (except an invigilator) during the examination and must
not disturb other candidates.
• Candidates are not allowed to use mobile phones or similar devices for any
communication during the examination. Mobile phones or similar devices
must not be used as calculators. Such use will result in the cancellation of
ALL scripts from that examination session (ABE regards an examination
session as the whole week of the examination).
• Candidates are not allowed to have on their examination desk: books, data
tables, notes, paper, dictionaries (including bi-lingual or electronic) or any
other written material (even if it does not relate to the examination being

the question paper. The possession of such material during the examination
