If I fail an assignment can I retake it?

You don’t “fail” with Cambridge Open College. Should your submitted work not be comprehensive enough, or you have missed something out that is critical to demonstrate full understanding, you will be given the opportunity to rewrite your assignment and resubmit it. The assignments are “open book”, so you should be able to properly research and re-present your answers successfully.
Your tutor will ask you to resubmit your assignment and give you some indication of what you need to improve. The process can be repeated as often as you require until you “get it”. The only caveat is that it should be completed with the 12 months’ tutor support allocated to you on enrolment, unless you get dispensation from your tutor to extend. There is a charge for this, should it become necessary.
