  • You’ll only see appointment slots that are more than 48 hours (two full days) ahead and that are equal to or longer than the length of the exam.

Candidate accounts

Candidates with an account can log in to view their confirmed exam appointments and change practical appointments at Public Venues. Candidates can register and create their own account or parents/carers can do this on their behalf. The account must be registered in the candidate’s name. Find out more about candidate accounts.

Changing confirmed Private Visit dates

Once we have confirmed a Private Visit (28 days before the start date), there will be a minimum charge of £300 per full day or £200 per half day to change the date(s). This covers part of the cost of paying the original examiner and searching for and booking a replacement examiner. We can only accept requests to change Private Visit dates from the Visit Organiser.
