Microsoft Office Specialist Exams

Exams are scheduled throughout the year, during normal office opening hours and take place in a designated exam room on campus at Lancaster University. 

Exams are primarily performance-based and conducted in a "live" or simulated environment. Exam duration is around 50 minutes plus around 5 - 10 minutes signing in time and short online exam tutorial.  For MOS 2010 exams you are asked to perform a series of tasks to clearly demonstrate your skills, MOS 2013 exams present you with a project to build, with tasks and steps that build on each other.

Dates and time slots will be added in due course, however these will be limited as room refurbishments are taking place. Therefore, at this current time, from week commencing Monday 18th July 2016 and throughout August 2016 it is highly unlikely any exam dates and time slots will be scheduled.

Exam dates and time slots are scheduled dependent on invigilator and exam room availability.
