These will be conducted under the eye of a mutually acceptable local Adjudicator, Pastor or Elder.

The examination papers will vary but will contain a number of different types of question, e.g. multiple choice, short answers and essays. Modular examinations will consist of questions specific to the module, maximum time allowed being two hours. Final examinations will be set on the entire course under study, the questions and type of question depending on the course itself.

The only material that will be permitted in the examination will be the examination paper itself, pens or pencils, erasers and rulers, extra paper, and the Holy Bible (as all studies will be based on the Authorised Version, this will be the only translation permitted) a Strong’s Concordance and an Oxford English Dictionary.

Examination papers will be sent to the Adjudicator who will be responsible for arranging a suitable time for the examination to take place and will open the sealed envelope in the presence of the student at the time of the examination (and not before).

On completion of the examination the papers will be given to the Adjudicator who will verify that all has been carried out according to the college requirements. These will then be posted by him (or her) to the Registrar.

The grading system used by the college is similar to that used by other colleges, covering seven major areas, subject comprehension, organisation of material, correct and sufficient use of Scripture, research data, submission requirements, spelling and grammar and presentation.

For all postgraduate students, there will be a final examination, when all course work has been completed, all previous grades along with the final examination grades will determine the final grade.

There will be an examination fee applied to all students sitting final examinations, this will vary according to the examination being taken, but will not exceed 10% of the total course fees.
