1. Which IoLET Examination should I study for?

We can provide you with information about what is expected from candidates in a particular examination, what the qualification will equip you to do and where it is recognised.
Further info: Examinations | Exams Comparison Chart

2. Am I at the right level for the IoLET examinations?

Through using past examination papers.
Further info: Materials & Publications


3. How do I register for an IoLET examination?

An examination entry pack can be obtained from this website or from the Central Registration Department at the Institute.
Further info: Materials & Publications | IoLET Qualifications


4. What are the entry criteria for the examinations?

There are no entry criteria. All of our examinations are open entry. However, we do define the level of the examination and the standard of competence we would expect a candidate to have before sitting the examination.
Further info: Materials & Publications


5. Can I register for an examination online?

This is not possible at present. To register you need to submit your signed copy of the Examination Entry Card.

6. Where can I find the examination handbooks?

You can download your copies from the relevant qualifications sections.
Further info: IoLET Qualifications | Materials & Publications

7. Why is the closing date for registration so long before the actual examination?

Registration closing dates have been carefully calculated to allow sufficient time for the examination material and the examiners to be fully prepared.
Further info: IoLET Qualifications | Exam Fees & Dates

8. Do you accept late entries?

Late entries are normally not accepted unless otherwise stated.
Further info: Exam Fees & Dates


9. Why are the examinations held only once a year?

The examination cycle actually takes fifteen months which has to be compressed into a twelve-month period.

Inserting additional examination sessions into that cycle would add considerably to the examination costs which would then have to be passed on to the candidates in the form of increased examination fees.


10. When does the 5 year limit for completion of a qualification start?

The 5 year limit starts from when a candidate first passes a part or parts of an examination.
