This is where a candidate transfers from one registered centre to another JCQ-registered centre after the submission of examination entries.
The candidate’s entry remains with the school or college that entered them and the candidate remains their responsibility.
The candidate retains their original candidate number and unique candidate identifier (UCI) throughout the examination series.
If you want the results to be sent to the host centre, the entering centre would need to withdraw the entry so the new centre can submit a new entry.
Only timetabled exams can be transferred; non-examined components such as non-exam assessment, controlled assessments, coursework and practical assessments are excluded from these arrangements.
We charge an administrative fee for the transfer of each candidate. Details can be found in the fees list.
Any administrative fees charged by the host centre are the responsibility of the entering centre.
*If the host centre has not used Digital File Despatch before, we will create an account for them. Automatically generated emails will be sent when materials are available to download.
