Disclosure of examination results to third parties
If you do not wish the IoD to disclose your results to third parties, including your tutors, please write to us at email@example.com to opt out. This information will be limited to your grade (eg Pass).
If you do not opt out, for candidates who are successful only, the Institute may inform your IoD Region of your achievement. The names of successful Diploma candidates will be published on the IoD website after each examination.
In relation to the release of examination results to third parties (programme managers), if you have not ‘opted out’ for purposes of non-disclosure, the IoD may inform your regional director if you have been successful in the Certificate and Diploma examinations. This information will be limited to your grade (e.g. Pass).
Cancellation of examinations by IoD
In the rare situation where it is not possible for your examination to be conducted following efforts by IoD to accommodate the examination – for example in the event of natural disaster, geopolitical or other significant circumstances or where the conduct of agents appointed by IoD fail to discharge their responsibility, the result of which will carry a significant risk, candidates will be notified and offered a further examination sitting without charge. It is stressed that this will be extremely rare.
The examinations for the Certificate and Diploma in Company Direction take place three times a year internationally.
