HN Programme Update for Students
Following representations from the College, Pearson has now appointed an External Examiner for the HN programme.
The External Examiner will visit the College on 17th February 2019 to verify standards and review the recommendations of the College Academic Assessment Board for the award of HN certificates.
HN students should note that Pearson as the awarding body, rather than the College, is responsible for the award of Certificates. Pearson has indicated that they may wish to carry out additional checks before issuing certificates to HN students.
HN students are reminded that no grades are final until they have been internally verified, approved by the College Academic Assessment Board and externally examined by a Pearson standards verifier.
As part of the standards verification process, the Pearson External Examiner may wish to interview a sample of HN students. The College will contact those students directly to invite them to attend a meeting with the External Examiner.
