Unit 2 & 3


It is necessary to attend courses of tuition for Units 2 and 3. A regular schedule of courses and examinations is offered annually at the RSCDS Summer School at St Andrews. Otherwise, Branches run courses according to local need.

The minimum number of total presentations for an examination diet to take place is six. If there are no candidates for Unit 2 and fewer than six candidates for Unit 3, examiner expenses will be shared between the Branch and the RSCDS on the following basis, unless prior permission to do otherwise has been obtained from the Education & Training Committee, or unless the minimum of six is made up by candidates for Unit 5 sitting at the same time:


Branch share

RSCDS share

 3 candidates

 half

 half

 4 candidates

 one-third

 two-thirds

 5 candidates

 one-sixth

 five-sixths

 6 candidates

 none

 all

If there are fewer than 3 candidates, an examination cannot take place.

At Summer School the courses for Units 2 and 3 are taken in sequence over a fortnight, with the examination for Unit 2 held at the end of the first week and the examination for Unit 3 held at the end of the second week; there is some preparation of the course for Unit 3 in the first week. Any candidate coming to Summer School to do only Unit 3, who has not previously done the course, is required to attend Summer School in time for the start of class on the Wednesday of the first week.

Please note that the results of the Unit 2 examination are not made available until after the examination for Unit 3 has taken place.

Applications to sit Unit 2 and/or Unit 3 at a Branch or approved centre must be received at Headquarters no later than 6 weeks in advance of the date of the examination.

Applications to sit Unit 2 and/or Unit 3 at Summer School must be received at Headquarters no later than 1st February.
