Examination Timing

Examination entries should be submitted before the end of January 2021 please.  It is helpful, for administration purposes, if candidates contact the exam centre at which they would like to register, well in advance of the deadline.  This gives exam centres plenty of time to notify Cambridge International Examinations (UK) that they have candidates.  Centres will then receive all relevant information and support relevant to the conduct of the examinations. If there is any problem at all about the entry process please contact ISER.

IGCSE examinations are scheduled to take place as normal in the UK in 2022. In the case of Covid regulations causing examination cancellation, exam centres cannot guarantee that assessment or grading will be possible.

Provisional dates for 2022: 


IGCSE 0499 Sanskrit*

Paper 01 (1.5 hours) Wednesday 27th April (PM)

Paper 02 (1.5 hours) Friday 29th April (PM)


 * This is for the UK zone. Exams officers in other zones need to check precise details according the timetable for their region. Slight adjustments may be needed depending on time differences.
