ICM Remote Assessment

“Having supported Centres and learners for over 40 years, ICM appreciates the enormity of the challenges educational practitioners and learners have and continue to encounter. The Covid-19 pandemic has brought many aspects of life to a standstill. However, having now liaised with education ministries worldwide and reflected on the feasibility of offering validated opportunities for assessment to our learners and Centres, we are now delighted to launch the ICM Remote Assessments. ICM endeavours to support Centres and learners during these challenging times, and we hope the ICM Remote Assessments will bring an opportunity for a positive focus and we wish you all nothing but success in the future.” Adair Ford, ICM CEO.
