One of the great thinkers & advocates that I've the pleasure of knowing, Ms Gillian Palmer has provided a set of concise basic rules of thumb for working adults wishing to upgrade their academic qualifications but not sure of what is "needed" and "accepted" in academic realm: 

  • Avoid anything with purely online assessments (online essays are different)
  • Look for  assessment set by ‘sessions’ or ‘registration groups’
  • Require discussion groups
  • Require tutor/facilitator/supervisor/group contact (the more the better)
  • Require ID at time of assessment.  That’s as valid on-campus as online.  That may sound silly but you need to know that you and all your peers are real people sitting real tests.      "
