You will need to log on to the NEBOSH platform and will be given a realistic work scenario with a series of questions to test your understanding. It normally takes a minimum of 4 hours to complete it and results will take at least 8 weeks. The pass mark is circa 45% but varies slightly depending on the difficulty of the paper.

  • The NG2 Practical Project (a risk assessment and report based on your own workplace)  - This is submitted online and it is a significant piece of work and must meet various criteria to pass. The NG2 is submitted within a 10 day period after the monthly NG1 exam date (regardless of whether you are sitting the exam that month or not) and there is no pass mark.
