Test bookings

For many of our qualifications, learners are required to take a test, which may be onscreen or on paper. In either case you will need to book the test, so we can send you the test materials or give you access to an onscreen assessment. Our guides on the right explain how to make bookings and entries.

Please note that, as part of an on-going review process and the redevelopment of our assessment materials for the IHCD Paramedic Practice qualification, the following test papers will be removed from the website with immediate effect:

  • Module G multiple-choice tests
  • Module H multiple-choice tests
  • Module I1 multiple-choice tests
  • Module I2 multiple-choice tests

We will only accept results for the above test papers for exams sat up to or on 19 May 2014. Tests sat after this date will not be valid and learners will need to sit a redeveloped test paper.
