Please note: we reserve the right to make changes to these dates.
Reminder: the 4 May deadline is the last date for centres to register you for the test, so you will need to register with a centre well before then. Centres may set their own deadline in advance for accepting registrations, so please make sure you speak to them as early as possible.
*If the registration deadline falls on a public or national holiday, please be aware there is no extension to the registration period. Therefore, you must ensure your centre registers you for the test in good time.
**In the UK, the test will take place in the morning. For international centres the scheduled start times will vary, depending upon where they are in the world.
