UK Examinations

Here you will find guidance on how to apply for examinations in the UK, including fee information, exam centre locations and up-to-date examination dates.

Candidates Self-Isolating

Teachers who have submitted timetables and payments for examinations and have received notice that candidates/s must self-isolate, are requested to contact ukdanceteachers@istd.org for the timetable to be amended. 

Please note that if a substantial number of students are withdrawn and the examiner is travelling to the exam venue, you may be required to hold the session remotely. 

Teachers may apply for a 50% refund for candidates who are required to self-isolate. Alternatively, we can transfer the exam fees to a new remote exam session for your candidate/s on a later date, or to your next exam session. All applications must be made on Quest. 

Please note that we are experiencing a high volume of candidates who are self-isolating, and we may not be able to offer you a new exam session on our busiest dates.
