RHS 'New Syllabus' exam retakes
Fees for both theory and practical exams are now paid 'up front' to the RHS at the beginning of the courses so you do not book or pay for exams separately. However where it is necessary to retake a Unit exam or practical task, there will be a further RHS exam fee which the centre will need to pay to register candidates. For information on the fees, please click on the sidebar.
To pay for a resit, please use the dropdown box below marked 'Other' where you will find current resit dates listed.
RHS 'old syllabus' exams:
The next RHS exam round for the 'old' Level 2 and 3 Certificates is scheduled for February 2024. For Level 2 this is the FINAL exam round to complete your qualification - if you are ill or fail an exam in February there is no possibility of a resit. Level 3 exams continue to February 2025.
We will be offering these exams at our Ryton centre only: booking will open at the end of September 2023. For further information, directions etc please click on the centre tile.
You can also book with the RHS to take your exam online -and whether or not you are a BEST student, you may prefer this option which avoids travelling long distances to an exam centre. Please contact email@example.com for enquiries about this, but be aware that like all exam centres there will be administration fees to pay.
To book these exams:
If you are a student with BEST, please enter the student ID number (which you will find on your 'profile' in the online classroom; NOT your RHS candidate number) which will allow you to make the booking and remove the additional booking charge. If you have the one of the later six-figure enrolment numbers, please use the first five numbers.
If you are not studying with BEST you can book exams but there is a booking charge (£25 for each day of exams) which helps to pay for running the exam - invigilation, administration costs such as hire of exam rooms, posting papers etc. RHS exam fees are now increased annually; as we have to pass on the full fee to the RHS when you are registered, our exam fees are £1 more than the RHS fee to cover Paypal deductions. Please note that exam fees are non-refundable in line with RHS policy.
