Initial assessments and renewals: frequently asked questions

Initial assessments and additional documents

I sent through my initial assessment application/additional documents and want to sit an upcoming examination. Can my documents be prioritised?

We are unable to prioritise applications for candidates wishing to sit the March 2020 written examination.

Due to the number of applications awaiting processing, please allow at least eight weeks for your application to be processed. We will contact you via email once your application has been assessed.

Renewal applications

I sent through my renewal documents and want to sit an upcoming examination. Can my documents be prioritised?

We are working to assess all applications which were sent between May and November 2020. Out of fairness to all candidates, we are processing these documents in order of when they were received.

If you have submitted an application for renewal and an examination application, we will assess your renewal at the same time as your examination application; however, we will not process either application unless they are both complete and include all required documentation, correctly certified. Information regarding the certification of documents is available here.
