Registration for Public Examinations

Once you are sure of which public examinations you will be taking please complete the online application form by following the link at the bottom of this page.

If you have taken any public examinations in the last few years then you will have a UCI (Unique Candidate Identifier) number. This consists of 12 numbers followed by one letter. It is crucial that you provide us with this number as it identifies you to the examination board. It can be found on any previous statement of results or examination certificate you have. If you cannot find it then please contact your last examination centre before completing your application to avoid delays in processing.

On receipt of your application the Exams Officer will check the information you have provided and contact you to confirm and register your entry.  All examination fees must be paid before you can sit any of your examinations.

To enable the accurate identification of candidates you will need to bring photographic ID, such as a passport, to your examinations.  Your photograph should be recent and you should be easily recognisable from it.
