The ETHOS exam has a three-hour time limit, and most applicants use the allotted time to complete the exam. A score of 60% (60/100) is required to pass, but we would typically like to see a much higher score than 60%. Applicants who fail to pass the ETHOS exam must wait 6 months and then re-register for a second opportunity to write the exam. Each request will be considered on an individual basis. The modules assess the following four areas:
- Memory and observation skills (20 marks)
- Reading, Comprehension and Critical Thinking Skills (25 marks)
- Summarizing skills (10 marks)
- Writing and editing skills (45 marks)
