To avoid any disturbance please remain seated before, during and after your exam. A staff member will show you to a  room where you can take a moment of solitude if requested.

What happens if my identification is out of date, the name does not match, I have the wrong ID or I didn’t bring two forms of accepted identification when required?

In any such cases we are not able to admit you for your exam. There are no exceptions to this and failure to provide acceptable identification will result in no admission, you will forfeit your exam and your exam fees. Please check your Identification beforehand and DON’T schedule your exam if you are unable to produce correct identification.

Can my friend or relative wait for me in the centre while I sit the exam?

Unfortunately we must ask all participants to attend alone. Due to covid restrictions we ask any friends or relatives to stay in the car or take advantage of what the shopping centre has to offer while they wait. You can enjoy a coffee or a meal while you wait.
