The IGC has two unit assessments (see ‘Qualification key features’ for details on the assessments and the pass standards); you must achieve a ‘Pass’ in each unit to be awarded the qualification. 
You will have five years to complete your qualification. The five-year period starts from the date you passed your first successful unit (we call this the ‘declaration date’).
