UK Private Centre
To enter students through a private centre, you will need to complete and return a private centre registration form. You will then be able to choose an examination date that is convenient for you and book an exam session.
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.
Booking an examination session
To book an examination session, you must complete and return a Private Centre Date Booking Request Form. When completing this form, you will need to calculate approximately how much examining time you will need and request sufficient days to accommodate all your examinations.
Entering candidates for examinations
Candidate entries must be submitted six weeks before the first examining day in your exam event via ExamTrack.
*Please note: the Bulk Entry Form will not be accepted as of 1 August 2018.
