The results of Certificate of Merit and Distinction assessments are normally emailed to candidates within seven days of the conclusion of the relevant assessment process. Successful candidates receive simple English language notification of their success. An English language certificate is emailed to such candidates as soon as possible after the completion of the assessment process. Unsuccessful candidates receive an English language emailed notification of their result together with a brief statement summarizing the reasons the assessors were not satisfied that the required standards had been demonstrated. No further correspondence regarding an assessment or the declared result is permitted.
