Self Study & Exam Only (including non Members)

Self Study & Exam Bookings – MKARS Members

Members do not have to pay to use our exam facilities, although you do have to pay the appropriate RSGB fee for the exam. The training team can provide you with free training materials and also carry out any required practical assessments –  read the information in the final section of this page and then email to discuss next steps.

Self Study & Exam Bookings – Non Members

If you are a non member and wish to use our facilities to sit an exam, then we are happy to support you. Email to discuss your requirements but please note we charge a £10 flat fee to cover our costs. You may pay this using the link below, but please make sure you contact us first to ensure we can accommodate your preferred date.

Please be aware for the Foundation & Intermediate exam you must bring proof you have completed the prerequisite practical assessments. If you are unable to provide the appropriate documentation you will not be able to sit the exam. In that case the fee is non-refundable.

Exam Process

The cut off for exam only and self study requests is 3 weeks before the advertised exam date.

All applicants will require an application form from the training team and will need to pay the RSGB the associated exam fee for the exam level they wish to sit – paperwork and codes will be provided once your place is reserved.

  • Foundation £27.50
  • Intermediate £32.50
  • Full £37.50

We only host 1 exam session at a time, you can not sit multiple exams with us on the same day.

You will need a laptop that you can bring with you to the exam centre to undertake the exam.

We are used to making adjustments for those who need them, but please be aware if you are likely to need a reader, extra time, or a paper version of your exam, we need to give an extra weeks notice to the RSGB so contact us asap.
