What Happens If You Do Not Pass?

You have two options if you do not pass the examination. You can:

  1. Retake the examination again once you are ready (exam fee due again)
  2. Appeal your result with APMP

Appeals Process

If you believe that your result at any stage of the program was unfair, or that you were disadvantaged in some way, you may submit an appeal to APMP. You may also appeal to the APM Group if the appeal is based on the technology for the APMP-Foundation™ level examination.

At APMP-Foundation™ and APMP-Practitioner™ Level

You may appeal on the basis that a question was poor. This does not mean that your appeal will be successful in changing the result of your examination. You may well have a poor score against the remaining questions, or other areas of the program stage. You must submit an appeal in writing within one month of the result.

If your appeal is associated with the performance of the examination website, we will investigate whether the cause of the problem was your computer or the server. Server problems will result in a successful appeal and we will arrange for you to retake the examination. Problems with your computer are generally beyond the scope of support of the APM Group and, although they may provide advice about your computer’s configuration, your appeal may not be successful.

The APM Group provides telephone support for administration and technical queries during normal UK office hours (9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m., Mondays to Fridays). They expect to be able to resolve administration or technical inquiries within four hours.

At APMP-Professional™ Level

You must submit an appeal in writing within three months of the result, with reasoned arguments against the feedback provided by the Assessor.

This topic, Executive Summaries, is way underrated. The Executive Summary is the most eye-catching document, which almost everyone on the customer side reads. Yet, in most bid teams, we don’t dedicate the attention it deserves. I want to learn about something I can immediately put into practice at my workplace, which provides a “quick win” to the team and is a long-term benefit for the company.

APMP certification is the gold standard for the industry. For me, accreditation is formal recognition of my commitment to the profession, as well as an avenue for improving my performance and bid outcomes by training in APMP principles.

Without APMP, I would not have the tools or knowledge of the industry to have the career I have today and the success I have experienced.

Acquiring the executive summary micro certification has helped to build my confidence in producing best practice Executive Summaries. I also benefit from the social media badge for my LinkedIn profile and certification to add to my resume. Both of these allow me to verify my Executive Summary capabilities.
