On test day, candidates are required to present an original identification document (in which the photograph is recognisable as a likeness of them as they are on the day of the test). The only acceptable documents are:

  1. a valid passport, or
  2. a current, photo-bearing driver licence (learner's permit, probationary or full licence), or
  3. a current EU/EEA National Identity Card,
  4. biometrics resident permit or
  5. a certified letter of identification. (see sample ID letter)
  • The certified letter must be on official institution letterhead (i.e. school, employer, doctor, police station etc.)
  • It should contain your full name, date of birth and a passport-sized photo of you glued to the letter.
  • The institution's stamp must overlap the photo.
  • The official verifying the identification must include their signature and title.
  • A witness to the official's signature is required.
  • Your signature is required.

If you intend to present a certified letter of identification, please organise it well before the test date.
Note: If your certified letter of identification does not conform to the criteria described above, you may be turned away from the test centre.

No other form of identification will be accepted. Candidates that do not have one of the above forms of identification, should allow enough time to organise one before the test date. Some of these identification documents can take approximately one month to obtain.

The date of birth, first and last name in the identification document used on the test day must match the Admission Ticket details.

If you do not present one of the above approved identification documents, in addition to your printed Admission Ticket, you will not be able to sit MSAP-UK and will be turned away from the test centre.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Student cards will not be accepted as identification.

Photocopies of identity documents and expired documents are not acceptable.
