The assessment for Unit ND1/ID1 is split into 4 sections:

Units ND2/ID2 and ND3/ID3 are each assessed with a case-study and scenario based questions.
You will have 4 weeks to complete each question paper and submit it for marking. We recommend you spend at least 40 hours on each paper (around 10 hours per week).
