Sorry if this question has been asked before, I did try to hunt for a thread about something similar.
I have nearly finished my assignment and will be ready to submit it. Must I wait for my assignment to be marked and passed before I can sit the written questions? Or can I sit the written questions straight after I submit my assignment?
As Musab said you don't have to wait until your exam is graded, you must take the exam for your assigment is graded, in other words, if you don't take the exam your assigment is not graded, it is graded when you send the assigment and take the exam (you can take the exam the next day you send your assigment, but not before you send it, is the only condition).
I hope it helps you.
