Exam admittance information and permitted materials

This page includes information on what you need for exam day, what you can and can not take into your exams with you, and what we will supply for your examination.

Approximately three weeks before your exam, we will post you your admittance information. This will tell you:

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

Check the date, time, and centre details on the admittance information carefully.

If you need to change your allocated venue or have two exams scheduled at the same time contact us using the details at the bottom of the page.

Note:  Our examination centres change from time to time.  Ensure that you know the location of your examination centre and how to reach it.
