Total Exam Fee: The Total Exam Fee is the sum of the current individual exam fees. Our prices are reviewed on an annual basis and so the fees for each exam may be subject to change.

Total Workbook Fee: The Total Workbook Fee is the sum of the current individual workbook fees. Our prices are reviewed on an annual basis and so the fees for each workbook may be subject to change. For qualifications that allow different combinations of units, the Total Workbook Fee is a guide that reflects the most common combination of units used to achieve the qualification.

Associated Learner Fee: The Associated Learner Fee includes all current fees for services directly related to the delivery and award of a qualification. Our prices are reviewed on an annual basis and so the fees for associated services may be subject to change.

Condition F of the General Conditions of Recognition stipulates that awarding organisations must publish the total qualification fee for each regulated qualification. The fees presented below are based on prices for the current year, however, many candidates take the exams within a qualification over one or more years and therefore the actual cost will reflect the price rises over the period.
