What is a transferred candidate?
This is where a candidate transfers from one Cambridge registered centre to another registered centre after the submission of exam entries.
Candidates who need to move to another centre can only continue with the exams if they move to a centre registered with us. Candidates cannot transfer to another centre for specific syllabuses or components. They can only transfer for all of their assessments in an exam series.
A candidate who transfers to another Cambridge centre after final entries are made becomes the responsibility of the receiving centre. This centre should allocate its own candidate number to the candidate.
We accept amendments to entries of candidates who are moved to another of our registered centres after their entries have been submitted.
You cannot ask to transfer a candidate to another Cambridge centre less than 10 working days before the candidate’s first exam in the series.
How to arrange a candidate transfer
To transfer a candidate:
Associate Centres should send forms to their Cambridge Associate.
What happens next?
Once we receive both forms, we move the entry from the original centre to the receiving centre. Do not enter or withdraw a candidate who is being transferred, or make any changes to their entry until we have confirmed that the transfer is complete.
We will refund any entry fees to the original centre and charge entry fees to the receiving centre for the transferred candidate. We will not charge late entry fees to centres for receiving a transferred candidate.
If necessary, the original and receiving centres must make sure internal assessments are completed. Once the transfer is complete, the exams officer at the receiving centre must submit any internally assessed marks and samples.
