The current P1 and P3 exams will be removed following the June 2018 exam session and an exciting new exam – Strategic Business Leader – will be introduced from September 2018.

The new exam will provide you with the real-life skills to make you even more effective in the workplace.  These changes are part of the introduction of Strategic Professional, which will replace our Professional level exams from September 2018. 

Students who have completed the P1 and P3 exams will receive a converted pass in the Strategic Business Leader exam – but this pass will only be awarded if you have completed both exams.

For guidance on how these changes might impact your exam planning in 2018, download our useful guide below.

Resources and tips for Success

We know that completing P1 or P3 before September 2018 may be important for you, particularly if you have already passed one of the exams. 

To make things as easy as possible for you, we have created these quick guides to the P1 and P3 learning support resources, putting the spotlight on the tools you should be using to maximise your chance of exam success. 


We've also developed a series of P1 and P3 free webinars to help boost your confidence and achieve exam success.  Discover more about these webinars which are all now available on-demand.
