If you are a student on an NCTJ-accredited course, please speak to your course leader or tutor with regard to applicable exam dates.
If you are an industry candidate attached to an approved exam centre (e.g. newspaper office), speak to your employer with regard to holding shorthand exams.
All other external candidates (i.e. off-course students, distance learners, non-NCTJ learners), you can book your exam sitting via the National shorthand exams booking page.
In all cases, remember to take photographic ID with you to the exam - valid passport, drivers' licence, student ID card, company ID card.
