The need for an examination is usually stated in recruitment advertisements or in departmental circulars.
Notifications to attend an examination are usually sent to candidates by e-mail / post two weeks before the examination. The notification e-mail / letter sets out the date, time, venue and other information about the examination.
The examination is only held on the scheduled date and no alternative arrangements will be made.
Candidates should take the examination at the time and place on the scheduled date specified in the notification e-mail / letter. Owing to limited seats in each examination centre, any requests for change of examination venue will not be considered.
Enquiries about or requests for review of the examination results should be directed to the recruiting departments / grades unless stated otherwise in the notification e-mail / letter.
