International Private Centre
To enter students through a private centre, you will need to complete and return a registration form.
Setting up a private centre
If you wish to set up and run your own private centre, a Centre Coordinator must be nominated as the single point of accountability for the quality assurance and management of LAMDA examinations delivery at the centre. This Centre Coordinator is also responsible for all aspects of examination administration, including booking examination dates, collecting entries and fees, providing stewards and timetabling examination sessions, receiving timetables and examination reports, as well as distributing results and certificates.
Entering candidates for examinations
You must request an examination date with at least 16 weeks’ notice. Your request will need to be in writing and should contain the start date of the session and an estimate of its approximate duration.
Candidate entries must be submitted eight weeks before the first examining day in your exam session. You can enter your candidates electronically using the Online Entry System (OES)

If your country or region has an examinations representative and you are not able to meet the minimum entry fee requirement, contact your representative. S/he will look to coordinate the timings of several private centres in one session, to ensure that the minimum entry fee requirement is met.
Contact LAMDA Examinations for your representative’s contact details.
If your country does not have a LAMDA examinations representative, you will not be able to hold a private centre session unless you meet the minimum entry fee requirement.
