With the unprecedented global COVID-19 pandemic, the health and wellbeing of our students, training providers, colleagues and staff is paramount, and BCS adhere to the local government advice regarding social distancing/ wearing masks.

We have been closely monitoring developments in each country where BCS Higher Education Qualifications are delivered. If your local government permits exams to go ahead, and exam venues are open for candidates to attend, then all exams will go ahead as planned.

As per your updated admission notes, the 14 day transfer window will apply, meaning you have 14 days from the date in which you received your admission letter to request to transfer your exams free of charge to the April 2022 session. Any candidate who does not want to sit their booked exams, and is outside of the 14 day window, will be required to register and pay for their exams again in the next session.

Note: if your transfer has not been approved by BCS, and you do not sit your exam you will be marked as absent.
