TASA unit includes an exam component, which needs to be independently supervised. The exam is a one-hour, open-book assessment comprising of multiple choice questions, very similar in format to the unit assessments.

The exam must be completed within your course duration period. Prior to your exam, you will need to complete and return the Supervisor Nomination Form to Applied Education detailing your supervisor's information, contact details and the elected date of your assessment.

Exams can be undertaken at any location and time of your choosing, with the only condition being that you have a nominated, independent supervisor present. Your supervisor can be a person of responsibility such as a registered tax agent, member of an accounting professional body, public servant, doctor, nurse, police officer, director etc. who does not have a close personal or professional relationship with you.

If you cannot arrange a supervisor then we offer the following options, at additional cost, for conducting your supervised assessment:
