The exam is a three-hour exam consisting of multiple choice questions and essay questions. Exam will be in selected material from the whole year's program. You will be informed of the material to be studied for the exam in advance.

Why an annual exam instead of a quarterly or semiannual exam? the main reason is that this will allow the student to revise important material and retain necessary information.

Semi-Annual Assignments: In the two-year program, students have to complete semi-annual assignments (in addition to any monthly or quarterly exams). Information regarding Assignments will be sent at the start of the 2nd and 4th quarters. Assignment deadlines are: August 31 and Feb 28. Assignment may be submitted at anytime during the quarter but no later than the deadline dates. Assignments may be submitted using email, online submission, or mail. If an assignment consists of audio (for example speech recording), it must be sent through mail. In that case, it should be post-marked before the deadline date. Late receipts may be dismissed and will require resubmitting the assignment by the end of the next quarter. Failed assignments also have to be redone and submitted by the end of the next quarter.

Mode of instruction: guided self-study. Every quarter, students are emailed course material in Zip format which they must study during the quarter. Self tests and quizzes are also emailed as well as any assignment material. Self-tests are not to be mailed to the center. Completed quizzes must be emailed or mailed and are graded and kept on file in student records. Students don't receive their grades on quizzes but are informed whether they passed or failed and they must retake the quiz that was failed and resend the answers to the center. At the end of the year, students receive transcripts for quizzes and exams taken.

Students are advised to print all study material, tests, supplements, assignments, and calendars and use the printed form for study purpose. This will enable the student to study more effectively and efficiently.

If student opts to receive material through mail, they receive the whole year's study material at the start of the year (divided into 4 packages). Student must pay for shipping and material costs.
