Part 1: Scenario material
You will be provided with scenario material a minimum of three days before the assessment is due to be taken. This could include a number of documents such as articles, written communications between relevant stakeholders, data sets, tables and charts.
This will give you the opportunity to review the materials and familiarise yourself with the scenario, and the subject area before sitting the exam. The exam question will be set around the scenario on which the advance material is based.
You are not required to undertake any research or additional reading relating to the technical material beyond what is provided in the scenario documents.
Part 2: Written paper
The CP3 exam is a three hour paper, which will have two questions
First question: a written communication piece such as a written report, a memo, a letter or a set of briefing notes.
90% of the overall mark
Second question: a short reflective piece which will give you the chance to justify the style and structure of communication and the choice of charts/tables or diagrams you have used in your written answers.
10% of the overall mark.
At the end of the three hour exam you have an additional 5 minutes to upload your exam submission. This must be completed within these 5 minutes to confirm your upload has been successful. You are able upload before this time if you have completed the exam question paper earlier.
