Latest exam updates

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be providing a reduced number of Public Venues for Session 3 2020. We will publish a list of Public Venues in advance of the booking period. This list will be subject to change, depending on local and government guidance. We will also be publishing comprehensive information about what we are doing to ensure the safety of everyone using our Public Venues. This will include guidance and instructions for candidates and other visitors.
