Information for Centres

The IFE acknowledges, with thanks, the valuable contribution of examination centres in providing venues and examination arrangements that meet high quality standards and enable examination candidates to access the IFE’s examinations.

All examination centre team members should read the Examination Centre Handbook before conducting examinations as it includes important information on:

  • The role of examination centres and the specific responsibilities of Invigilators and Centre Managers
  • Preparations for examinations
  • Invigilation processes
  • Reasonable adjustments
  • Malpractice

The Examination Centre Handbook is updated for each examination session.  The following handbooks are available:

October 2017 Examination Centre Handbook

March 2018 Examination Centre Handbook

Each centre is asked to complete an Examination Centre Management form for each examination session. Centres are required to confirm their commitment to meet the centre responsibilities and to set out the arrangements that are in place to manage the examinations.

Potential centres must first contact exams@ife.org.uk to discuss arrangements and to confirm that they can meet the responsibilities of an IFE Examination Centre.
