Exam Registration

October/November 2021

Listed below are various exam venues, based in Gauteng and Western Cape, which we as IIC have developed relationships with over the years. If you do not live in either of these specified areas, please scroll down to “Alternative Venues (Worldwide).”

Should you intend to write any exams during the October/November 2021 exam session, then you are required to register through an accredited Cambridge Examinations centre. Please contact one of these exam centres in order to register as a private candidate before the specified deadline. If you only intend to write exams at a later session then the information below will not apply to you.

 

Option Codes:

Please refer to this Option Codes document which contains all the Option Codes and Paper Numbers for the examinations that I.I.C. offers support for.
Although not all exam centres require these details, some do. Check if the application form for your centre of choice requires option codes.
Please note that these codes only apply to sudents writing in South Africa.

The Option Codes describe what Paper Numbers you are required to write in your exams for each subject. Some centres prefer for you to write down the actual Paper Numbers instead of Option Codes – as such we have provided both sets of information for each subject that I.I.C. offers support for.

 

Timetable:

Please refer to the November 2021 Exam Timetable for details regarding exams held within South Africa.

PLEASE NOTE:
For exam registration purposes, ALL communication must be between you as the student/parent and the exam venue themselves. This includes queries regarding:

  • registration details
  • payment
  • exam venue
  • exam schedules/timetables
  • what to bring to an exam
  • results

Please be aware that IIC is not affiliated with any of these exam centres and therefore, as a private candidate, please direct any queries in this regard to the examination centre.
