Exam dates 2021

Important information about your examination

Please note the following important information before you book your examination:

  • We reserve the right to make changes to these dates.
  • Whilst we made every effort to find alternative places we cannot guarantee that all students, especially for the CS1 and CM1 exams will be accommodated.
  • Each exam centre and online exam has a set capacity, and these can get fully booked before the exam entry closing date. We therefore suggest you book early to ensure you get the exam place you are hoping for. As ever, the earlier you book the better your chances of avoiding difficulty.
  • When booking for two part exams your booking confirmation will only show the date for the part A exam. Your exam permit, when issued, will cover both parts of the examination.
