How do I register for an external exam?
  • For CambriLearn Primary and Foundation 1 & 2 students (this is Foundation Phase to High School) you don’t need to pay any additional exam fees. When you complete the exam is also entirely up to you.
  • If you’re 16 or older, you’re an independent student, and this means you need to write exams at a Cambridge test venue that allows ‘private candidates’ to write there.
  • If you need to find a test centre near you, please visit this page.
  • Because you’re a private candidate, you’ll have to communicate with your chosen test centre directly, as you have to register yourself when arranging your exam time. There’s an exam in May/June and another in October/November each year. You contact the exam centre at least three months before you choose to write your exam.
