Applications from outside the UK
How you enter for LAMDA Examinations depends upon your circumstances and on the arrangements available locally. There are two main routes of entry for examinations:
A private centre is a venue that is organised and managed by a teacher or other contact independent of LAMDA Examinations. It is administered by a nominated Centre Coordinator, who is responsible for booking the examiner through LAMDA Examinations, arranging the venue, entering the candidates, arranging the timetable and distributing results when they are issued. There is no fee to be a private centre, but you will need to make sure that, for each examination session you book, the minimum total fee for your candidates reaches the set minimum entry fee for your country or region. You can find out the private centre minimum total fee for your country or region by contacting LAMDA Examinations.
If you are an individual candidate, or a teacher with candidates whose fees are less than the set minimum entry fee for your country/region or who does not have an appropriate venue, you can apply to take examinations at a public centre. A public centre is run by LAMDA Examinations and is open to anyone who wishes to take an examination. Contact LAMDA Examinations to find out if public centres are active in your country or region.
In some countries and regions, LAMDA Examinations has nominated representatives to administer the examinations on our behalf. In these countries or regions, the representative should be the main contact for all enquiries, including syllabus queries and examination session arrangements. The countries and regions with representatives are:
- Hong Kong
- India (Western) – Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka
- Republic of Ireland, Cork
- South Africa
