Results for the October exams are due out on 8 December 2021.
The next exam round is scheduled for 7-10 February.
Our online booking system is set up to allow our own online and correspondence students priority in booking their exams by entering their BEST enrolment number (not the RHS Candidate number).
If you are a student with BEST, please enter the student ID number (which you will find on your 'profile' in the online classroom) 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 after 10 November 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.
After the October trial you may also be able to 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 Qualifications@rhs.org.uk for enquiries about this, but be aware that like all exam centres there will be administration fees to pay.
Last entries for exams at BEST centres will be on 21 December to allow time for us to process your entries on the RHS portal and for you to check them. The date on the RHS timetable ( Thursday 6th January) is the last date on which the RHS will accept exam bookings from a centre without making a late booking charge (which doubles the exam fee).
RHS exam fees are now increased annually in September; 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.
