Examinations fees and regulations

We charge local fees to cover all costs related to the administration of the exams and the dispatch of scripts by courier. These fees are paid directly by the institution or by the candidates, depending on the requirements of the client examining institution.

Local fees may vary depending on the exam board, exam duration, the number of candidates sitting the same exam and, in some cases, on the share of the board fees, when these have to be paid to the client institution by our Centre.
