Examination Timing

Examination entries should be submitted before the end of January 2018 please.  It is helpful, for administration purposes, if candidates contact the exam centre at which they would like to register, well in advance of the deadline.  This gives exam centres plenty of time to notify Cambridge International Examinations (UK) that they have candidates.  Centres will then receive all relevant information and support relevant to the conduct of the examinations. If there is any problem at all about the entry process please contact ISER.

IGCSE examinations take place in May, and AS/A Levels in May/June.
