ICB Assessment Application Form

Once you have completed your ICB subject they will need to make sure that you know your stuff. This is done by getting you to sit for an ICB exam and filling out a ICB Assessment Application Form. You will need to register with the ICB and pay your registration and assessment fees before you can write your ICB exam at one of the assessment venues.

Important: You can only be assessed if you have entered for the assessment before its closing date, and paid your annual ICB student registration and assessment fees.

How to apply for exams

When you first register for an ICB programme, you’ll be told about the exams that apply to you and will be advised on which you should take and when. You will need to fill in the assessment entry form and the learner details form. You can download them here:

  1. 2016_ICB_Learner_Details_Form_v2.pdf
  2. 2016_ICB_Assessment_Entry_Form_v2.pdf

3-4 weeks after the ICB has received your Exam Entry Form, you will receive your ICB Portfolio of Evidence (PoE), which contains more information about your exams. It also contains your unique Student Number, which you must include on all your exams in order for us to process them properly.

What if I forget to write the date I want to be assessed on my Assessment Entry Form?

You won’t be the first! More learners than you think forget to fill in the date they want to do their assessment on. Please remember to fill this in! If you don’t, the ICB will automatically register you for assessment on the next available assessment date.

What if I don’t attend an assessment?

If you do not show up for your assessment, you will be marked absent. If this happens (whatever the reason), you’ll need to re-enter the entire assessment (including resubmitting a Portfolio of Evidence). You cannot cancel an assessment – but you can request a postponement.

So if you know you’re not going to make it to your assessment, rather request a postponement in advance, than not show up and be marked ‘absent’. To request a voluntary postponement, you’ll need to send the following to the ICB two weeks before your original assessment date:

  • A letter explaining why you are unable to attend your assessment.
  • Payment of the relevant postponement fee.
  • Send these to the ICB with a covering note clearly stating which assessment date and subject your postponement refers to. Remember to quote your ICB number too, and speak to your college if you have any questions.
