Test session bookings

Test centres operate to a staggered schedule and not all test centres will operate on every day of the test window. A list of available session times will be shown on the test registration site. You will be asked to select your preferred test centre, test date(s) and session time when you complete your online registration for the test. Additional test sessions may be added to some test centres during the relevant test window registration period if there is high demand.

You can select your test session(s) to occur on the same day (including consecutive AM or PM sessions), or across multiple days. You can also sit the literacy and numeracy tests separately during different test windows. Test centres will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so you are advised to register early. If you are unable to book a place due to a test centre being filled to capacity on your preferred test dates, you may wish to register for remote proctoring.

Important test centre booking conditions

You can change your test centre booking from the list of available session times during the relevant test window registration period.

Note that it is not possible to change your test session booking after the close of registrations for the test window. All test centre session bookings at the close of the registration period are final and confirmed. When you book a test centre session, a seat is allocated to you for the exact test day and session you booked.

You should take into account your personal circumstances and availability prior to registering for the test and selecting your test session(s).

It is not possible to change test session bookings due to personal circumstances or misadventure on your scheduled test day(s). For example, if you book a morning session, it is not possible to request changing to an afternoon session, or to a session on another day during the test window. Additionally, test centre session bookings cannot be deferred to future test windows.

Please note that test centre sessions may have to be cancelled at short notice in compliance with COVID-19 restrictions. In such an event, ACER will contact and offer affected candidates a full refund or the opportunity to sit the test via remote proctoring where operationally feasible in the same test window.
