3. Exam Booking: Postpone/Reschedule, Cancellation and Late Booking
Once a Practical or Performance Grade exam is booked into an exam session, it is not possible to postpone or transfer that booking to a later exam session. The self-service options to reschedule the exam up to 48 hours before the date of the existing booking, or make a late booking, will be available approximately 1 to 2 weeks after the booking period has closed. Both these services are not guaranteed, and subject to availability within the exam session dates. Cancellations are subject to our cancellation policy, with updated guidance due to COVID.
4. Change an existing booking from Practical Grade to Performance Grade, or vice versa
It is not possible to change an existing exam entry to a different type of exam. You will need to cancel your existing booking and make a new booking in the next booking period or via late booking, if applicable. Cancellations are subject to our cancellation policy, with updated guidance due to COVID.
