The ECC exam is designed to allow learners to show that they have learned the basic knowledge needed in each BESCLO area and that they can apply this basic knowledge in situations they are likely to find when they start to work in social care. The format of the exam is very simple and is the same for each BESCLO area. The exam can be taken on line (but at present is only available in some languages and this will require access to the internet under exam conditions) or in a paper version.
- You have a choice of selecting either TRUE, FALSE for each statement. if you wish you can choose to make no answer at all. (NB in the online version you must select one of the three options because the software will not allow to leave a question blank.)
- Each statement has four answers, which are either right or wrong. There are three statements per BESCLO area making 12 questions per area. In any one statement ALL FOUR answers could be RIGHT, or ALL FOUR could be WRONG or any combination in between. Think very carefully if a statement says something is ”˜always”™ or ”˜never”™ the case or that you ”˜must”™ do something. There are no 'trick' questions, but you must (for example) be very clear that if you agree with a statement that you "would never do" something , then you really do mean 'never' and not 'most of the time.'
- There are eight sections to the exam covering each of the eight BESCLO areas so total of 96 questions in the exam and you will be given 60 minutes to complete the exam. (In the online version there is a clock at the top of the screen telling you how much time you have left.) Your invigilator will also tell you how much time is left. You can finish and leave the room of the exam at any time but you will not be allowed to return to the exam. You are not allowed to use or refer to anything that will help you answer the questions for the duration of the exam
- We have found that learners do better in the ECC exam when they are familiar with multi-choice questions. We have created some practice exams (click here to download an example) and would recommend that you try them out first.
