ICB Assessment and Exams

Your ICB course will have assessments you must do throughout your course as well as ICB exams, that occur at certain dates, and that you need to register for. Skills Academy is focused on making sure you get everything you need to receive your ICB qualification.

The Portfolio of Evidence

Once you register for the ICB exams you will need to complete a portfolio of evidence. All tests and assignments that you complete through your course will go into this portfolio. Once you do your final exam assessment, you need to be able to hand in this portfolio. The ICB will send you this portfolio directly. It will also contain the Administration Book, which gives you instructions on how you to complete your portfolio of evidence. This is very important and should be read through well. Consider it your guide to getting your ICB qualification.

Mark Allocation and Objectives

30% of your final mark is determined by your assessments you do throughout the course.
70% of your final mark comes from your final exam. You also need at least a mark of 50% in your final exam to pass.
You need a minimum of 60% as your final mark to pass your course’s, module.

Qualification Documentation

You will get your certificate for your qualification after you achieve a final mark of 60%. We will post this to you.


Your results for assessments and exams will be emailed to you, or can be downloaded from the ICB.
