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 take place in May outside the UK. In the UK the exams are cancelled and grades will be teacher-assessed only. Dates for 2021: 


IGCSE 0499 Sanskrit*

Paper 01 (1.5 hours) Monday 10th May (AM)

Paper 02 (1.5 hours) Friday 21st May (AM)


 * 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.
