    Our examination venues are located in Ponders End, Enfield. When you have booked all your examinations we will enter you for your chosen exams and email you your Statement of Entry. This is an official document, which states all the exams you have been entered for, along with their dates and times. Please keep it safe, as you will be required to bring it to each of your exams.


    Our application process is very simple and straightforward.

  • Start by downloading the Exam Entry Form and Exams Terms and Conditions
  • Next, fill the form in very carefully, using CAPITAL LETTERS and clear, black ink
  • Contact details: telephone number, e-mail - we may need to contact you if we have questions about your booking
  • Please double-check the details provided, to make sure there are no spelling mistakes, particularly in your name and UCI number
  • When you are happy that everything is correct, please print the document and sign and date both pages. You may scan and email the document to us, or bring it personally if you are local.
  • You are required to make full payment for your exams at the time of application (bank transfer if applying by email, cash or card in person or over the phone).
  • If you email us, we will reply to confirm we have received your application. You will be kept informed of its progress. When we receive your complete application, we will register you for your exams with the examination boards. The board (or boards) will then send us confirmation of your exam registration - known as Statement of Entry – which we will forward to you. Please keep this document safe. Statement of Entry will have your details on it, and the details of all the exams you entered for within that board.


    On your exam day please arrive on time. If you arrive late for your exam, you may not be permitted to enter the examination room.

    Please go straight to the reception desk and show your ID and Statement of Entry. You will be allocated to a specific examination room. Please wait in the waiting room until you are called to your exam. Use this time to check that you have everything you need for your exam - for example pencil, black pen, calculator, water bottle (no label allowed), texts (when permitted), etc.

    If you have a mobile phone with you, switch it off and leave with your belongings in a secure place in reception. If you take it with you to the examination room, you must hand in your mobile phone to the invigilator before the examination starts. If you are found to have any unauthorised materials on you, you will be asked to leave the examination room and you may be disqualified from your examinations.

    Good luck with your exams here at ALA!
