Strategic Professional CBE specimens

From the Resources section below you can access the new Strategic Professional computer based exam specimens.  Like the Applied Skills CBEs, these exams will be phased in on a market by market basis.  Once they become available in a location the paper-based option will be removed.

Availability from March 2020

Strategic Professional CBEs will initially be available in selected locations across the UK (Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester), Czech Republic and Ireland from March 2020. 

Availability from June 2020

They will become available in all other UK locations from June 2020.

Availability from September 2020 and beyond

They will become available in more countries from September 2020.  These will be confirmed in due course and communicated through the usual channels.

Student communications

To give tutors time to familiarise themselves with the exam functionality, the specimens will not be promoted to students until after the June 2019 exams and are therefore not currently accessible through the Study Support Resource finder.
