Please note: as some providers are now delivering exams in centre again, please ensure you make it clear to the NCTJ on the booking form how your exam is being conducted (via the exam location field - 'remote' or 'in-centre'). Colour code any candidates sitting in-centre in red. If it is not clear the exam is taking place in-centre, we will otherwise assume it is taking place remotely and candidates will receive an incorrect version of the exam with the Proctorio software enabled.
2020-21 exam dates and start times - July 2020 to July 2021
Further booking Information: a shorthand exam must be booked a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the date it takes place. All candidates due to sit the exam must be listed at time of booking. Please do not rebook an exam to add additional candidates.
All shorthand exams are taken via the Cirrus online exams platform. If you require a copy of the latest shorthand admin pack which includes exam documentation and procedures, please contact [email protected]
Certificates: while most centres remain closed and NCTJ staff are also working off-site, the regular distribution of shorthand certificates is on hold. We will send certificates in bulk later in the academic year.
