Hi All, Yesterday I passed the first part of my Open Assessment, the multiple choice. And to anyone who is about to do it, don't panic, you have plenty of time to read, think and complete all the questions, then go back and re-check them. The next part for me is the bit I am concerned with because I am not well practised at essay writing so I am concerned about hitting the right points and about using the right technique they are looking for. The first question has my dreaded word 'Discuss' at the start.... if anyone can give me any pointers on technique I would be really grateful! Many thanks in advance.

Congratulations on passing. Not as bad as you think is it. You will soon be on your way to your PRI. That is also not as bad as you may think. Get a good presentation, stick to 10 minutes and make it all about YOU. Say 'I' not 'we' as it's all about you, and remember they are there to help you through the process, so relax as much as you can and enjoy the experience. I know they made me feel completely relaxed and if they don't think they have got the full answer from you, they will prompt you with extra questions. They want you to do well, and they want you to succeed. It's a really good experience, one I really enjoyed. Good luck in the next stage!

Congrats to all that have passed! What is the passing score? I received a 75% on part A, and know that Part B is separate. One of my essays has been marked, a 40/50 and says "passed." So is there a passing score for each individual Part B question? Or is there a cumulative score for Part B? If so, what is it? Not a lot of info out there. Thanks!

You should be able to find all you need under 'My IOSH' and IPD section. They don't give much away, you just need to have good general knowledge of health and safety matters, maybe look through some old text books/study material you have from past competencies? Good luck, I am sure you will be fine :)

Can anybody advise if I need a separate registration for open assessment or it appears on completion of a dummy test? Just to be clear - I need to do both SDP & EOA and completed the first part.

Thanks

Alex

Hi! after going through the comments I saw that this post was old but I still hope that someone could help us and give us some advice. I really do. I will wait for another user to pop up and make a new comment to this thread. I will be playing brawl stars or maybe mobile legends while waiting for answers. Maybe I'll try to do some research too and get back when I do to give some help. Anyway, Have a good day!
