You are here:
In 2021 TSA: Section 1 for Cambridge will be a computer-based test. You should confirm with your school or test centre whether they will provide the computer or whether you need to bring your own.
Details have been updated in these web pages.
You need to be registered as a candidate for TSA: Section 1 by a test centre (you cannot register yourself for the test).
You must take the test at a test centre that is authorised to run Admissions Testing tests (for most candidates this is their own school or college). Check with your Exams Officer if your school or college is already registered as a test centre that can run our tests.
If your school or college is not already registered as a centre, they can check to see if they are eligible to apply to become a test centre. The deadline to apply is 30 September 2021.
If you are not able to take the test at school or college, you need to find an authorised open test centre where you can take the test.
If you cannot find a test centre within reasonable travelling distance of your home town, please read our Support Site article.
Please ask the Exams Officer at your school/college/test centre to register you and give you your candidate entry number as proof that your registration is complete.
