I’m not ready to take my exam, can I defer?


    Deferring your exam

    You can defer your exam twice in total, so if you register for May 2018 and don’t feel ready, the last time you can take your exam on that registration is May 2019.

    You can defer at any time leading up to your exam. The more notice you give the LI the better, so your place can be allocated to someone else who wants to take the exam.

    There is a deferral deadline 6 weeks before the exams. After this time you will be charged a £75 admin fee for deferring. This will only be waived if you can produce a doctor’s note or similar to explain why you need to defer with such short notice.

    For November 2018 exams the deadline to defer for free is 9 am Monday 1 October
