The Portfolio of Evidence is an important part of your learning journey as it enables you to prepare for your exams. You can not properly prepare for your exams if you do not have a Portfolio of Evidence.
The Portfolio of Evidence is accessed through the ICB MACCI platform.
In phases 1 and 2, the assignments are completed online. The assignments are also auto-marked. You will receive immediate feedback on your submitted assignments.
You will need to download the assignment for phase three and complete it offline. After completing the assignment, you will need to scan it and upload it to the Portfolio of Evidence.
The assignments are not timed but you will need to complete them in a single login.
Two online tests need to be completed as part of the Portfolio of Evidence. The tests are part of phases 1 and 2. Tests are written online and are auto-marked. You will receive feedback immediately.
Unlike the assignments, the tests are timed. The tests are designed in such a way that there is no time to look for answers. This means that you have to know your work well.
