Are there exams?

We like to think we have redefined the word ‘exam’ here at Monaco. Yes, you have a standard that you need to reach, and we measure that standard via 4 moderated assessments. However, these assessments are not pass-or-fail exams. We don’t expect you to break records on your first go.

Each time you do an assessment, we go through it with you, one on one, give you feedback, and send you away to practice again. You can do each one as many times as you want, free of charge, getting better and better each time. When you do eventually achieve an 80% feedback rating, you become eligible to receive recognition on your Certificate. That doesn’t mean you need to stop doing them though – you are still welcome to re-do assessments as many times as you like, to build confidence and get that invaluable feedback.

We take full responsibility for getting you where you need to be. That’s why we have so much support and so many extra lessons available to you.

The assessments are –

  • Written theory (Done from home, 100% online)
  • Practical Gel Polish
  • Practical Hard Gel
  • Practical PolyGel
  • Practical Acrylic
  • Practical Builder in a Bottle
  • Practical E-File
