To be fair to all candidates and clear about examination arrangements for the remainder of 2021, the following rules will apply for the remainder of this year.
This will maximise places for candidates who are able to travel and will help prevent empty seats on the day of the examination.
- Only apply for an examination in the UK if you can travel to the UK and meet the travel restrictions at the time of booking.
- Withdrawals for any examination will be at 90% of the fee before the examination closing date and 75% after that.
- Withdrawals due to travel restrictions changing before the examination date will be refunded at 75%, not deferred to the next sitting.
- Deferrals to the next sitting only apply to venue/examination cancellations and candidates who are already in the UK and test positive for COVID-19 in the ten days leading up to the examination.This is the only exception to the rule.
