Examination entry / Deadlines

Follow the instructions below to enter for your examinations. You can also find the entry deadlines for your programme.

Writing notes in the study centre
You should receive an email alert when the online entry task opens for your examinations.

You will only be permitted to sit examinations in certain sessions depending on the programme you are registered for.

Check your Programme Regulations for details when your examinations will take place each year, and contact us if you not sure.

Timetables for each programme will be published as soon as they become available. You can find contact details for our examination centres on our website.

In most cases, you will need to pay a separate fee directly to the centre to cover their costs. This is in addition to the examination entry fee you must pay to us.

Students sitting in all centres except Singapore and London

You must contact your centre to check for any specific local instructions and deadlines for entry.

  • Download your entry form and submit it to your centre for their records.
  • Keep a copy for your own records.
  • Pay all centre fees by any local deadlines set.

If the centre accepts your entry, it will issue you with a single validation code. Each code is unique and can only be used once.

When you have your validation code, return to the online entry task.

  • Enter your validation code.
  • Make your entry.
  • Pay our examination entry fee if applicable.

You must complete this part of the task in order to make your entry. The centre will not forward your entry to us on your behalf.

Please note:

Some centres may deviate from these procedures. You should always follow the advice given by the centre and contact us if you are in any doubt.
