What to bring to the exam
CIE qualifications are recognized internationally. For more information please visit the CIE recognition webpage.
Access arrangements are pre-exam arrangements made on behalf of a candidate with particular needs. For example, the use of a scribe, modified papers or extra time.
We recognize that although some candidates cope with the learning demands of a course and demonstrate attainment in the skills being assessed they still face unnecessary barriers when it comes to the standards assessment.
Such barriers may result from:
- a permanent or long-term disability or learning difficulty
- a temporary disability, illness or indisposition
- the immediate circumstances of the assessment.
The purpose of an access arrangement is to remove any unnecessary barriers to the standard assessment, without compromising the standards being tested, so that the candidate can receive recognition for their attainment. For some subjects, certain access arrangements are not available. A candidate may require a particular type of access arrangement in one type of assessment but not in another. Please indicate your specific needs at the point of registration.
If your questions haven’t been answered, kindly contact the exams team for more information.
The British Council and the examining boards take all reasonable steps to provide continuity of service. We feel sure you will understand, however, that we cannot be held responsible for any interruptions caused by circumstances beyond our control. If examinations or their results are disrupted, cancelled or delayed, every effort will be made to resume normal service as soon as possible. The British Council’s liability will be limited to the refund of the registration fee or retesting at a later date.
Fees: All fees are valid for the current registration period only and are subject to change. Please check the relevant web pages for the latest fees before registering for the next session of exams.
