    Exam Centre London has carefully generated the price list in an attempt to make our prices affordable to all candidates. Therefore, our prices only reflect the cost associated with sitting the exam with us without any preparatory sessions. However, we acknowledge that having a tutor to support is highly beneficial, hence we have this option available to all candidates that require it at an additional cost.
