Information for Examination Centres

October 2021 Examinations

The Examination Centre Handbook for October 2021 can be downloaded here.  

Examination Centre Managers and those supporting the administration of IFE examinations in other roles such as Invigilators are also asked to read the guidance on managing examinations safely.  This guidance has been provided by DfE to assist centres in planning and managing examinations during the pandemic. The guidance is available here.

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

Examination Centre Manager Form

Each examination centre is asked to complete an Examination Centre Manager 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.

New Examination Centres

Potential examination 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.
