    STUDENT REVIEWS OF KICA-ECOLE DUCASSE ENSP CERTIFICATION:
    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    What if I do not get a PASS for practical task?
    You have 3 attempts for each pastry to be performed, each of them is followed up by a detailed feedback of a course tutor – Alexandr Trofimenkov. Usually, 3 attempts are enough to make a decent pastry to get a PASS for practical task.

    If you did not manage to perform a pastry remaking it 3 times, we are going to discuss the case separately and suggest an individual solution for such a case.
    What if I do not get a PASS for examination test?
    Test has unlimited number of attempts. The success rate should be 100% of right answers. In case you fail answering some questions, you have time to go through the theory topic again to find the right answer and after that retake the test once again. The purpose of this test is to not only to control your knowledge but also to refresh and memorize crucial theory topics better.
