Why is the ICB's Business Literacy split into three levels, and what must I do if my result is 'not yet competent' in any of the levels?

The ICB examines NQF Level 3, 4 and 5 in one subject – one Portfolio of Evidence (PoE) and one final exam. 

We’ve bundled the three levels into one subject, so that the PoE content and the final exam covers all the levels sufficiently. 

The benefit is that you only have to enter and pay for one subject, but get accredited at all three levels. This saves you having to complete three separate subjects.

You will get a result for each level. If you fail one of the levels (you are ‘not yet competent’) and would like to rewrite the subject, you will need to complete all three levels again in order to pass the subject.
