Student Success in March and May 2017 CIPS exams

icon-news

According to figures released by CIPS, over 94% of our school’s candidates passed the March 2017 CIPS exams at our East Croydon exam centre, with almost half of those achieving a Distinction. A candidate needs to score over 75% in these 3-hour unseen written examinations to achieve a Distinction. These results cover CIPS Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Professional Diploma. Well done to students and tutors alike! Remarkable results.

A similar tale for the May 2017 exam results. Again very very strong exam results. Thanks to all students (and tutors) for the hard work which produces these results. A thanks for the many e-mails for thanking us…

Largest CIPS Exam Week Ever at Ian Tait and Co

icon-news

November 2016 proved to be the busiest CIPS exam week ever at Ian Tait and Co Ltd. Record numbers attended at our CIPS exam centre in East Croydon, with well over forty students taking part during exam week. By taking exams at our exam centre, our students are able to take some pressure off the CIPS Regional exam centres, where May and November prove annually to be the busiest months. Students taking the AD3 and PD3 open book examinations commented favourably on the large-size desks which were available to them, enabling the candidates to spread out their books and notes comfortably. The growth in numbers of exam candidates is due in part to the availability of all subjects from CIPS Diploma through to CIPS Professional Diploma at the school.

Easier Card Payment

icon-news

Those of our customers who wish to pay using a card will be able to do so in a simpler, easier method from now on. Ian Tait and Co will send a link by e-mail which simply requires card details to be entered by the customer to make payment. This ‘Pay By Link’ system will replace our previous method which required our Centre to take details by telephone, which was not always convenient for our students and their employers. It’s now incredibly easy. You can now pay 24/7!
