It depends if you do the old QCF course (which some FE colleges still do) there are no exams. Most centres have moved to the new RQF which has either 1,2,3 or 4 exams depending on the size (certificate, diploma or extended diploma) the spec is at; https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...logy-2016.html

Normally two exams each year. The centre will deliver units in year 1 totalling 540 GLH and the other 540 in year 2. They normally plan exams for units 1 and 2 in year 1,so that if you drop out and don't do year 2, you still get a Certificate or Ext Cert or Foundation diploma depending on which Mandatory units you cover.
