2) Go digital only

You can register as a centre to only offer our Digital exams. There are no venue requirements and no minimum fee to meet. This is a good option if you have smaller numbers of candidates, want to go fully digital and want full control over managing your entries. Follow the same process as above.

3) Enter via a public centre

This is a good option if you have smaller numbers of candidates to enter as there is no requirement to meet a minimum fee. Find your nearest public centre for Drama exams.
