The Board keeps examination fees as low as possible but must set them at a level which covers the costs of setting, printing, and despatch of papers, and all administration.
From autumn 2015 the following fees apply:
For candidates sitting an examination overseas, the fee will be subject to carriage charges.
The Board always does its best to accommodate late entries for its examinations and assessments. However, the costs involved in processing late registrations are high. Therefore, all late entries are subject to a fee of £50 per school if received after the published closing date (1 October for the autumn examination, 1 December for the spring examination, 1 March for the summer examination).
Changes to individual candidate details (e.g. change of school, subject or level) are likely to incur an administrative fee of £5 per candidate
if received more than two weeks after the published closing date.
If changes to individual candidate details result in additional papers being despatched to schools or other sitting centres, courier and packing charges will be added to the standard administration fee.
