Everything exams officers need to know about entering students for exams, including information on resits, series opening and deadline dates, basedata, fees and transfers.
You can't enter your students for our exams unless we've approved your centre. Make sure you become a centre before you start teaching a course.
Our student section has information about private candidates.
You can use either EDI or Centre Services to make entries for all qualifications except the Unit Award Scheme, for which you will need to speak to the relevant subject team.
Opening and deadline dates
When we upload the basedata files for the exam series, you can make entries with EDI from that day, and with Centre Services shortly afterwards. Our exams update newsletter will also let you know when entries are open.
It's important you don't miss the dates below. If you do, you'll be charged an extra fee.
