Exam admittance information and permitted materials

Examination Admittance Notification

Approximately three weeks before your exam, we will email you your admittance information. If you are sitting more than one exam, you will get a separate email and attached PDF admittance letter for each exam. The exam admittance letter will tell you:

  • where and when your exam will be
  • what you can take into the exam.

Check the date, time, and venue details on the admittance information carefully. If any details are incorrect, or you need to change your allocated venue or you have two exams scheduled at the same time, contact us using the details at the bottom of the page.

You need to print the exam admittance letter and take it to your exam along with your photo ID.

If you cannot print the letter, please contact us immediately. Our contact details are at the bottom of this page.
