Q1: What is UCAS ID?
When you register with UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service), you will get a 10-digit Personal ID Number like this: 123-456-7890. It is very important to ensure that your UCAS ID and personal details submitted to us are accurate and match what you put in your UCAS application, so that your results can be sent to the correct university.
Q2: How long is the result valid for?
The result is only valid for the year the test is taken and cannot be carried over to a re-application.
Q3: Can I take Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing this year if I don’t plan to apply for university in this year?
Yes, but as the result is only valid for the year the test is taken and cannot be carried over to a re-application, you need to take the exam again in the year you plan to apply for universities.
Q4: How to deal with the time clash between different exams?
With the same exam series, there may be different scenarios of exam timetable clash:
- For timetable clash between multiple subjects of Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing registered at our centre, we will make re-arrangement accordingly. Candidates should refer to the Confirmation Letter for the final timetable. If there is any timetable clash between two exams, one of them will be rescheduled for a different time on the same date. Candidates should be under full centre supervision during the break between two exams. During the break, candidates will not be permitted to use mobile phones nor any other electronic devices or communicate with the other candidates.
- We are unable to make any rearrangement for timetable clash between Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing registered at our centre and other exams (e.g. Cambridge Assessment International Education). Candidates should avoid any timetable clash before registering for exams.
Q5: Could I register at different centres at the same time?
Within the same exam series, candidates can register for the exams of different subjects at different centres, but not the same subject at different centres. Please also note that if you register for exams at different centres within the same exam series, it may lead to problems like failure to rearrange timetable clash. Therefore, registering for all exams at one test centre is highly recommended.

- Download and complete the Minor Candidate Consent Form
