Special Examinations

RAD special exams.


Special examinations can be arranged for dates outside the published dates. They are subject to a surcharge which reflects the additional costs (see table). The RAD cannot guarantee to fulfil requests for Specials, as this depends on examiner availability.

To request a Special examination to take place at your Approved Examination Centre, please contact Idalina Lume, email: exams@rad.org.za. A minimum of four hours' examining time is required for exams in main city areas; five hours in outlying towns and three days in other African countries and Mauritius.

Examiner's travel and accommodation costs must be covered by the host school. Other conditions may apply – kindly check with the examinations co-ordinator in advance. Entry forms and fees must be received eight weeks before the requested examination date(s).
