ICB Exam Registration Forms

If you want to register for your exams with the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB), you will need to fill out the ICB Exam Registration form. The ICB has 4 exam sittings in a year, and you should aim to write at least one exam in each exam sitting if you want to complete your studies in the recommended time. First check the ICB exam dates for 2019 to see the final exam dates, as well as the cut off date for registering for each exam.

It is best to plan this before you start your studies. Each level of your qualification has a multiple subjects, so make sure you know which order you want to study them in, and when you will write each one, as per the exam timetable.

Before you decide which subject you wish to write remember that you can also apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). This will allow you to skip certain subjects if you have already studied somewhere else. This exemption can also be given for work experience. Make this clear with the ICB at the start of your studies so that you do not write exams that you don’t need to. You will now know when you need to apply to write your ICB exam. Click the link to download the RPL Applications Guideline Form.

This form is incredibly important as it contains a list of all the documents you need to submit for your RPL Application. You will send this, as well as the documents listed in it, along with your Student Details Form. Don’t forget to include the proof of payment for you RPL Application.

The first step is to download the ICB exam registration forms on this page.

  1. ICB 2019 Student Details Form
  2. ICB 2019 Exam Entry Form

Fill both the ICB learner details form and the ICB assessment entry form in carefully and send them to the ICB.  Remember that you have to be registered with the ICB before you can write your exam, and they will require that you send proof of payment for this when you submit your ICB exam registration forms.

Once you have sent in your application forms you will receive your ICB Portfolio of Evidence (PoE) from the ICB that will need to be worked through before you sit the final exam. Read our information page on PoEs very carefully as they are a vital part of your studies.

Your PoE also contains more information about your assessments. It also contains your unique Learner Number, which you must include on all your assessments in order for us to process them properly.
