You will sit your oral examination for the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis after you have completed a set of written exams. It focuses on the application of your knowledge and provides an opportunity to assess your interpersonal and problem-solving skills.
To help prepare for this exam, we have created a 1-day oral exam preparation workshop, which will help you understand and practice the key areas that will be on your official exam.
If you have enrolled onto the International Diploma in Business Analysis, or you are planning on taking that BCS certification, this workshop will be beneficial to you. Throughout this 1-day workshop, you will receive help and guidance on how to prepare to answer the questions on your oral exam.
During your 1-day workshop, you will cover the areas that you will be examined on in your exam, and discuss how the oral examination will proceed.
Your oral exam will be with two examiners and will last up to 50 minutes. You will be asked a range of questions based on topics defined in the oral examination syllabus, specifically from your chosen specialist modules. The questions will require you to apply your business analysis knowledge and understanding to a series of scenarios described by the oral examiners.
The oral examination for the International Diploma in Business Analysis is booked by the prospective delegate through BCS directly and fees are paid for the examination directly to the BCS. These fees are not covered by nor included in this workshop.
The Business Analysis oral examinations are the final element of the programme leading to the BCS International Diploma Certification.
