Throughout the course material you will find self-assessments and exercises to complete. These should not be returned to the College. They are a form of self-examination and reflection and should be used as a study aid.
As soon as you have completed the course and submitted your mandatory project to your Kilroy's College tutor for assessment and grading you will be required to sit the theory examination. This exam can be sat in Kilroy's College in our examination room based in Dublin 2 throughout the year. Please contact the College to arrange a suitable time to sit the theory exam. The project carries 60% of the final grade and the theory exam carries the remaining 40% of the final grade.
