Exam dates and fees

The UAE is currently offering Digital exams only (Theory exams are in-person).

Digital exams provide more choice and flexibility in how a regulated graded qualification can be achieved. The Digital exams are permanent - even when Face-to-face exams resume, candidates and teachers can still choose to take the Trinity exams digitally.
