There are two opportunities each year to sit this exam: in April, and in September/October.
For the April exam sitting, bookings will open in January/February each year; for the September/October exam sitting, bookings will open in July. Exam bookings are open for a limited period for each exam, and you must make your application by the closing date given on the form. You will need to pay the exam fee when you apply for the exam.
The exams will be based on the syllabus as supported by the core reading. The ActEd course material will be the main source of tuition as it expands on the core reading. The recommended study time for this exam is 200 hours depending on your past educational background in the subject.
To gain exemptions through a university course, it is necessary to successfully complete the full degree or diploma and to gain sufficiently high marks to qualify for subject exemptions
