What happens if I can't sit the exam I have registered for?
You can defer the exam if you are unable to attend it or if you do not complete your RoC in time. The current fee for this is £30.00 (this is subject to change). When you register for an exam, you only have three attempts to sit the exam. For example, if you defer your first exam, this will count as one attempt and you would have two attempts left. Please contact email@example.com directly if you need to defer. Please note that there may be additional charges with DNN depending on when your online course and support access is due to expire.
What happens if I use up all my exam attempts?
If you use up all your exam attempts due to failing or deferring exams you will need to restart the course again.
What if I fail my exam?
NEBDN currently charges £175.00 to resit an exam. NEBDN charges are subject to change.
Can I get a refund if I decide to cancel?
The NEBDN exam fee is non-refundable. If you have purchased this and not completed the exam entry forms, DNN will refund 75% of the fee as long as you cancel within 30 days of purchase.
