    Hi.

    I e-mailed my tutor the same question and he replied saying he thought we would continue with paper exams but they will soon know about what it will take to move to the new standards. He said they didn't really know yet but will hopefully know in a few weeks.

    Under the new standards for new students from July (everyone has to move by June 2011 if they haven't completed the level they are on under the old standards) all exams will be computer based.

    We aren't sure yet if we have to stick with paper exams until June 2011 or if we can do computer based ones.

    we have been told we can do our re-sits on CBE (shows the faith our tutor has as this was within the first ten mins of the first class) and they would be our exams

    CBA (Computer Based Assessment) will be introduced with the new QCF framework qualifications from September but some assessments will not be available until December (including Financial Performance - the old Unit 8).

    If you're considering resitting under the new framework, you will not be able to qualifiy with the NVQ but with the new Level 4 Diploma (ask your provider). I would recommend that, as some CBAs will not be ready until December, you may as well avoid the hassle of transferring from NVQ to QCF and compelte under the NVQ in December using paper based exams. For the NVQ route there are no Computer Based Exams at all at Technician Level (NVQ 4).

    Hope this helps.
