Preparing for the VCA exam

We recommend taking a VCA course in order to properly prepare for the VCA exam. If you would like to know more about a particular course then please get in touch with us. Note that you can also take the VCA exam after a course of private study; please go to our webshop for a selection of private study materials. When you turn up to take the exam, please bring your valid ID with you. We look forward to seeing you at one of our examination locations near you!

Digital exam and reading-out exam

The VCA exam is taken digitally. A candidate is given his or her provisional score as soon as he or she has completed the exam.

We also offer the Basic VCA exam as a reading-out exam. This is intended for people who for example have difficulty with reading, with the candidate then hearing the questions read out over the headphones provided. With a reading-out exam, the candidate is given an additional 15 minutes to complete the exam.
