An examination is generally held twice a year at a central London venue, usually in May or June and August or September. Intending candidates should apply not less than one month before the date on which they wish to present themselves. The entry fee is £150.00 (£75.00 for student members of the IPA), which should be paid online using the online registration form. Refunds will not normally be given for withdrawals or cancellations made less than one month before the examination date. Any refund is subject to a £20.00 deduction for administrative costs.
For the foreseeable future, during the Coronavirus pandemic, the IPA is suspending its examinations. This means that both examinations scheduled for 2020 are now cancelled.
