Examination Method

Assessment Structure

The assessment is an open book examination (OBE), which will be based on a realistic scenario, that will test both what you know and what you can do. You will be asked to carry out a series of tasks using evidence from the scenario and the underpinning knowledge gained through your studies and revision. You will have 48 hours to download, complete and submit your assessment.

Your assessment will be marked by an external examiner appointed by NEBOSH. These examiners are chosen for their experience and expertise to ensure that learners are assessed by the very best from our industry.

 

Examination Results

Results are issued 10 weeks after the assessment date.

The NC has one unit assessment (OBE) which a ‘Pass’ (45%) must be achieved in this unit in order to be awarded the qualification.

The qualification certificate is despatched by NEBOSH within 20 working days of the result notification date.

 

Resitting an Examination

If you have received a fail or referral in a NEBOSH unit exam, you can either:

  • Appeal to NEBOSH about your result

Appealing your result

If you feel your result doesn’t match your reasonable expectations, you can appeal to get your unit remarked by submitting an Enquiries About Results (EAR) form within 20 days of the result being issued. Be prepared that this could also result in you being issued a lower mark than the original.

Resitting your NEBOSH Certificate exam

You can resit a failed unit providing you do so within 5 years of your first successful unit being issued. If you haven’t yet passed a unit, the 5-year time frame won’t apply until you have successfully achieved a unit.
