The Cambridge Exams Officers' Guide is a step-by-step guide to delivering Cambridge exams in your centre. Different activities need to take place to successfully deliver an exam. We structure information about these activities around the Cambridge Exams Cycle (pictured below).

If your centre is attached to another organisation such as the British Council, you will not have any direct contact with us. Please contact your Cambridge Associate to submit any information or queries you have.
