Please arrive at the centre 15 minutes before your exam, so you have time to sign in and complete the necessary procedures. Unfortunately, if you’re late you won’t be able to sit your exam and will lose your fee.
You’ll be asked for government issued identification. If you don’t have suitable identification or you’re late, you won’t be able to sit your assessment and you’ll lose your fee.
You’ll need to leave personal items in the secure storage area. If you need to take anything into the exam room for medical reasons, please contact us for advice before your exam. You can see a list of approved comfort aids on the Pearson VUE website.

Pearson VUE’s platform for remote exams is called OnVue. You can see whether your qualification is available for remote invigilation on the relevant webpage.
