Exam regulations

Candidates will receive a notice to attend on the day they register if done in person at the exam centre, otherwise a letter or email will be sent no later than two weeks before the exam. On the day of the exam, you must :

  • arrive on time in respect of the schedule indicated in the notice to attend (for example 30 minutes before the exam begins); candidates who arrive late will not be allowed into the exam hall;
  • provide valid original ID (not a photocopy) with a photo. NB: failure to sit the exam because of a lack of ID does not entitle you to postponement or reimbursement;
  • provide proof in the event that you arrive late due to public transport, in which case your exam can be postponed. 

During the exam, you must :

  • check that the personal information on your registration certificate is accurate; this is what will appear on your diploma or certificate; 
  • write with a black pen (pencils are not allowed); 
  • use the material and documents handed out. The use of any document other than those authorised will be considered as an attempt to cheat;
  • place your bag, telephone (switched off) and any other electronic device in the location indicated by the invigilators.


  • Your TCF certificate will be sent by post to the address indicated on your registration form within the timeframe set out by the exam centre.
  • Results cannot be communicated by phone or email.
