Here are some useful tips and information to help you prepare for the day of your test.
Familiarise yourself with the format of the test and any equipment you may need. Visit the relevant test page to find out more about your test and to access preparation materials.
Check the date, time and venue address of your test.
Read the Notice to candidates so you know the test rules and regulations.
If you are taking IMAT, read the IMAT Notice to candidates.
Check how long it will take to travel to your test centre and make sure you arrive well before the scheduled start time (you should ask your test centre how far in advance of the start time you need to arrive).
You must bring valid photographic identification to the test (passport, driving licence or provisional driving licence, or student ID).
Make sure you bring the equipment you need to take the test (pen/pencil/eraser etc.).
Do not bring food or drink to your desk in the test room (apart from a clear bottle of water with any labels removed).
Your centre may give further instructions regarding what to bring or do on the test day. Make sure you follow these instructions.
You will not be able to bring to your desk any electronic items such as smart watches, mobile phones, digital sound recorders, MP3 players, cameras, etc.
Your centre will tell you where to put your bags, etc.
Listen to the invigilator and follow their instructions. If you have any questions, need help or want to leave the room, raise your hand and an invigilator will come to your assistance.
Do not talk to other test-takers.
Stop writing immediately when the invigilator tells you to do so.
Stay in your seat until you are told that you may leave the room.
Do not take any question papers, answer sheets or rough paper out of the room.
If you have any questions or problems, tell the invigilator immediately.
