Reporting to the Test Centre

Please report to the test centre at the address and time specified on your Admission Ticket. The test itself will start approximately 30 minutes later, depending on the amount of time necessary for pre-testing procedures.

You should expect to allow about 3 hours at the venue. This will include time for checking in all candidates, pre-test procedures, instruction time, handing out and collection of test papers, and actual test time.

If you report to the centre after all candidates have been admitted to the testing room you may not be admitted. No latecomers will be admitted once the test has started.

When you report to the test centre, you must bring:

  • your printed MSAP-UK Admission Ticket (with details completed on the back)
  • photo-bearing identity document (current passport or driver’s licence) or certified Letter of Identification
  • blue or black pens (for Module 1)
  • pencils (medium soft 2B preferred or HB), and eraser (for Modules 2 or 3).

Note: Mobile phones, calculators, dictionaries, audio or recording devices of any kind, food (unless permission is granted by the MSAP-UK Office based on medical reasons) and bags will not be permitted in the test room. We will endeavour to provide storage facilities for candidate property during the testing at the test centres, but you are advised to bring only essential items to the test centre with you.

Bottled water is permitted.

You are advised to eat a meal before reporting to the test centre, as you will be occupied for a number of hours and no food is permitted without prior consent.

You are also advised to dress in layers under your coat. Coats are removed, and heating in large test rooms can be variable.
