The fee is £80 per examination. Should you be unsuccessful you must allow 72 hours before booking again.

Thinking of entering for your CBEs? Have you taken the mock exams yet? If not, please click here for Law and here for Professional Responsibilities & Ethics.

You will be eligible to sit the CBEs following acceptance of your registration as an ATT student, subject to a 21 day period to allow your profile to be created on the CBE system.

You must apply to sit the CBEs online; an entry and payment facility is available via the Association’s website for this purpose. It will be possible to sit the two CBEs on separate occasions, or you may sit both back-to-back at a single session, with a short break between the two CBEs. Provision will be made for you if you are eligible for extra time or require accessibility software. Please contact the Association about this.

Various test centres around the UK will be available for you to sit the CBEs at a time of your choosing. You should allow at least 10 working days between the time of booking the CBE and an appointment being available at your chosen centre, and you should expect slightly longer waiting times at periods when demand is likely to be high (particularly in February and August).
