Candidates have the option to choose one of several assessment cycles throughout the year. Examinations are conducted within a defined assessment window at the beginning of each assessment cycle. Marking and moderation for examinations then takes place. For 2014/2015 markers and moderators will need to be available to travel to and work at NCC Education’s UK Head Office in Didsbury for one or more consecutive days in July 2014, October 2014, February 2015 and April 2015.
