At level 3, or advanced level, the work builds on the level 2 syllabus in terms of complexity and layout and aims to increase keying in speeds to 50/55+ words per minute (wpm).
The syllabus includes producing:
* multi page business letters
* complex multi page reports
* complex ruled tables
* complex multi page leaflets
* organisation charts
* form design
with reference to resource sheets for information to aid document completion. A high level of initiative is required to manage the information and in the exam, tasks must be completed within the time scale to pass. A high keying in speed is required to cope with the volume of text and requires daily practice to achieve the practical competence required.
