If you do not indicate your preference, we will automatically allocate you to the centre nearest to our correspondence address.
Special examination centres
If you live outside of the UK in an area not listed above, you can apply to IRM to arrange a special centre. All special centre applications must be made on the appropriate application form. They should be received by IRM by 28 February for the June examinations and by 31 July for the November examinations. A fee of £150.00 must accompany your form. Where arrangements are made, you will be required to pay any local supplementary charges made by the centre.
Special needs and access arrangements
Wherever possible, examination arrangements will take into account any special requirements you have. If you complete an application for special arrangements, we must receive your completed form no later than 28 February for the June examinations, and by 31 July for the November examinations. This is to give us enough time to effectively help you with your requirements. While we aim to meet all requests, we cannot fulfil requirements where applications are received late.
