Making a booking
For mailed exams:
We prefer at least 10 business days between submitting your booking form and the exam date. This allows enough time for your exam to arrive from your home institution. If you require an earlier booking and your exam can be express-mailed, we’ll try to accommodate your request.
For emailed/online exams:
We prefer at least five business days between submitting your booking form and the exam date. If you need an earlier booking, contact us and we’ll try to accommodate your request.
Note: Are you acting on behalf of an institution, business or professional organization? Please contact us directly to make exam writing arrangements for your students.
We are now open for in-person proctoring services, and look forward to hosting you soon!
Bookings are regularly available at these times:
- Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (Morning or Afternoon)
If you are looking for another day or time, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will see what we can do to accommodate. Take care and stay well!
Plan to arrive about 10 minutes before your exam is scheduled to begin.
