Links

Links for Students and Clubs

  • Training resources on the RSGB website;
  • Advice on successful exam preparation techniques;
  • Course and Exam Finder (for use outside of COVID-19 restrictions). We recommend contacting the listed clubs and exam centres to determine their plans to restart once the restrictions associated with COVID-19 are withdrawn;
  • Remote invigillated exam booking system. This system is in operation whilst the restrictions imposed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic prevent or limit the delivery of exams through traditional exam centres. It is unclear if this option will remain once the restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic are relaxed or withdrawn;
  • Candidate instructions for remotely invigilated exams;
  • Mock exams for all three levels of licence exams;
  • Updates to the Foundation, Intermediate, Full and Exam Secrets printed books:
  • Various exam form links;
  • Foundation Exam reference data EX307. This is provided to students in the exam;
  • Intemediate Exam reference data EX308. This is provided to students in the exam;
  • Full Exam reference data EX309. This is provided to students in the exam; and
  • Exam FAQs.
