To gain the Diploma in Solution Development, candidates must pass four one-hour examinations, each of which leads to a certificate which has value in its own right. To convert their set of certificates into the Diploma, candidates then attend an interview with two BCS examiners to confirm their technical, business and interpersonal competencies.


There are two core modules in the Diploma, which all candidates must attain. These modules may be gained in any order.

Our Solution Development Diploma oral preparation workshop prepares you for the oral examination.

  • Up to 50 minutes oral examination
  • Conducted by two examiners
  • Questions on topics from the syllabus, including the selected specialist modules
