If you need to postpone your exam before your final exam date, check the Exam Timetables to see the postponement cut-off dates for each exam cycle. If you are on time, you can postpone by paying the postponement fee.
If you need to postpone your final exam because you’re ill on the day, you can apply for a free postponement (include a doctor’s certificate with your request), which may be issued at the ICB’s discretion.
You may only postpone to the next exam sitting. You cannot postpone further ahead than this, because you run the risk of the materials/curriculum being out of date. Should you wish to choose a date further in the future, you would need to re-enter for the exam from the start and receive the latest Portfolio of Evidence. Please note that the annual updated Portfolios are only available from November each year, for the following year.
Please also review Section 5 of the ICB Examination Policy for all the rules and regulations.
