    Most centres should be able to offer you the CBE. The cost is approx £56+ depending on which centre you sit with and you should be able to apply with the centre of your choice and sort out payment through them.

    Hope that helps!

    the CBE exams are computer based which can be sat at any time throughout the year, providing the centre organises it to be undertaken and have arranged for invigilators etc. If I fail my ECR exam when the results are released in Feb, I shall be retaking by CBE the week after, so that most of the work is still fresh in my mind.

    I'm going to sit my FRA at the London Sam by CBE. I phoned them last week and they advise that the exams can be sat seven days a week. They do three sittings on weekdays, two on a Saturday and Sunday. The cost is roughly just under £60. They advise that you only book the exam about two days before as they have a lot of space in the exam rooms and there should be no problem getting booked on to an exam. The reason they advise this is that if for any reason you need to change the exam you need to pay an administration fee of £20. I was going to book mine about a week ago but they said it's not necessary to book that far in advance.

    Good luck to anyone taking exam soon.
