How to register to take an exam as a private candidate

All new candidates are required to visit the Centre in person to register. It is not possible to register simply by completing a form on line. Existing candidates do not need to come in to book exams for a new season. New candidates need to register with photograph id and proof of address. Private candidates need to know what exams they need to take and also provide the exam codes.

We are open for registration on Wednesdays and Fridays from noon to 6pm during school term only.
