External Assessment Schedule

Request for Covid-19 contingency policies

To ensure that learners and AIM staff are safe when exams are taking place, we are asking all centres to provide us with a copy of their Covid-19 contingency procedures along with a full risk assessment in relation to AIM qualifications and learners. If that is covered in a full organisational policy,  please send the full policy. These documents will help us to understand how exams are being conducted to ensure compliance with the VTQ COVID Extraordinary Regulatory framework. All policies will be kept in the AIM centres file.

We will need to receive these policies before we can allow the examination schedules to go ahead. Unfortunately, if we haven’t received this information, examination schedules will be cancelled so learners will be unable to sit the exam.

The schedule has been updated to reflect the agreed dates for delayed exams and resit opportunities.

Following feedback from centres, the next available exam dates for the Counselling suites will be the current scheduled exams in January 2021. This will incorporate the delayed exams and any resit opportunity for those with calculated grades from the summer 2020 exam season.

Any queries should be directed to enquiries@aim-group.org.uk

Scheduling

All schedules must be submitted using the AIM portal by the dates specified. All schedules are then confirmed via email with your named contact.

Results released

All results are released via email to the named contact. Our post-examination period is for 25 working days.

Online on-demand multiple choice examinations

Online on-demand assessments can be taken at any point throughout the year.

To book learners onto the assessment, centres must schedule the intended date and time of your online assessment through the AIM portal at least 48 hours before the intended date.
