Changes to the Professional Certificate & Diploma in Compliance
PDC 1 & PDC 2
The exam format for the PDC1 and PDC2 modules is changing – the MCQs (multiple choice questions) exam format is changing to a written exam. The September 2022 exam sitting will be the final MCQ exams for these modules. Starting with the January 2023 exam sitting, the exam will be a written exam and will include short questions and essay type questions.
PDC 1 - PDC 4
The module assessment will move to the UCD graded system. This will mean you will receive your letter grade as your exam result instead of the current pass or fail. On completion of the programme, you will be awarded with a distinction, merit or pass award, depending on your final results. The pass mark for each module will remain at 40%.
These changes will come into effect for the 2022-23 academic year, starting in October 2022. The September 2022 exam sitting will continue in the current format.
