Test Dates & Arrangements


IMPORTANT:
Candidates are advised to book their assessment as early as possible and should note that all assessment places may be filled some time before the booking deadline.

Travel and accommodation

Candidates are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements. Please ensure that these are in place prior to the assessment, taking into account the assessment date and registration time.

There is a restricted amount of storage space available at assessment centres. Candidates are requested to bring no more than one small bag to the assessment centre.

Candidates who arrive late for an assessment will not, under any circumstances, be permitted to take the assessment.

MCT

Candidates who attempt to register and/or book close to the relevant deadlines risk finding that that the assessment is already full or that the range of assessment centres available is severely restricted.

Candidates must register with Kaplan QLTS by the registration deadline shown below in order to be able to book a place on the MCT through Pearson VUE. All bookings (including payment) must be made by the booking deadline shown below.

IMPORTANT:
Please note that the MCT is a computer based assessment and if there are technical difficulties or other reasons why candidates cannot sit, such as adverse weather conditions, candidates may be recalled. Any recalls will be arranged as soon as possible. Every effort will be made for any recall to be scheduled at a time and place that is convenient to the candidate but this cannot be guaranteed.
