**The Learner may participate in as many non-formal Formative Assessments as are required in order to prepare for the International exam. Once declared ready, the Learner may then sit for the International Summative Assessment. All International Summative Assessments require a Learner to be declared Competent. There is no supplementary opportunity as the Learner is permitted to sit for the International Summative Assessment as many times as is required, until declared Competent. Each International Summative Assessment sitting attracts an additional fee.

Prescribed textbooks are included in tuition fees.

Learners may sit their International Microsoft Examinations at Boston City Campus. These examination fees are excluded but charged at cost. Please note that certification requirements, Module names and Exam Codes are subject to change and such change is at the discretion of Microsoft.
