    Change to the AML Part 66 examination delivery system

    In line with the recent change to the FCL examinations, all AML Part 66 examinations will transition from the LAMP system to the Quadrant system. The first module exams delivered via the new Quadrant system will be on the 14 October with all modules and part module exams transitioned to Quadrant by the end of 2017.

    Unlike the FCL exams in Quadrant, which have a number of minor changes to the way the exam questions appear to the candidate compared to LAMP, the AML Part 66 examination questions are unchanged from the way they appear in LAMP. The purpose of the notification is so that candidates are aware that the examination system is changing from LAMP to Quadrant, and that between October 14 and the end of December 2017 both examination systems will be being used.

  • Technical review requests

    Candidates and Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) may raise concerns or challenge the accuracy and effectiveness of an examination question, paper, or supporting materials. The CAA thoroughly reviews all such instances via the following two protocols and results may be amended where genuine issues are identified.

  • The CAA operates a performance management programme to maintain the integrity and effectiveness of the examination content. 

    This includes:

    • routine review of all presented questions,
    • statistical analysis,
    • trend monitoring of question results,
    • a review of all candidate comments. 

    With the implementation of e-Examinations, candidates are able to make comments during and at the end of the test. The comments are made by clicking on the pencil icon presented on screen and this prompts a text box to appear for comments to be entered. Entering a comment during the examination does not constitute a Full Review but every comment is reviewed by the CAA.

    A candidate can request a Full Review which is described as a comprehensive investigation into the accuracy and integrity of examination content and materials delivered to the candidate during a specific test.

    • The Full Review must be formally instructed by the candidate by requesting a "Review" in their results portal page. 
    • It must be requested within 14 calendar days of the examination in question. 

    A full examination fee should be paid by the candidate at the time of requesting the review, a fee which is fully refundable if an error is found and the candidate marks are adjusted accordingly. 

    The Full Review process is a fast track process which the CAA endeavours to complete within 10 workings days of the date or receipt of the request.  A letter will be issued to the Candidate (cc'd the Membership ATO) explaining the findings and closing actions.
