form must be submitted by 13 November for those attending the January exam or by the 13 April for those attending the June exam session.
The Association sets up examination centres in areas where there is usually a sufficient number of candidates wishing to sit the examinations and
availability of gemmological instruments for the practical exams. The allocation of a centre is entirely at the discretion of The Association and no
guarantee is given that a centre will be set up in any particular locality. Please note that certain examination centres may make their own local exam
charges; these charges are separate from The Association examination fees and are payable by the candidate direct to the Centre.
Special needs students: Please inform us if you have any disability, special needs or medical condition that you feel may affect your ability to follow
the course and/or sit the examination.
Payments: All course fees must be paid in full prior to the commencement of the course. Please find details of prices and instalments in the course

applicable, will be added onto your first instalment. We are sorry but we can provide only the instalment plans indicated and all fees must be paid by
the last instalment date indicated on the schedule.

subsequent time, no refund can be given.
