helpful tipsUNRIC's advice to candidates:

  • Please note: you may not eat inside the examination room.
  • You must bring your convocation lettre and ID matching the nationality with which you registered.
  • The doors open at 11:00 for registration. Until then, candidates will be outside with no access to the building and it may be quite cold.

YPP FAQ:

Question: What can I bring to the examination centre? Is there a dress code to take the examination? What is not allowed in the examination centre?

Answer: Please bring black pens, pencils, highlighters, calculator, ruler, your convocation (summons) document, and a picture ID indicating your nationality (passport, citizenship card, etc.). Eating is not allowed in the room, you may ask for a toilet break if you wish to leave the examination room to eat. Smoking is not allowed anywhere in the premises. There is no dress code to participate in the examination. Please be aware that some examination rooms might be rather cool or warm, so you should prepare according to the local climate and weather. Please click here for a list of acceptable calculators.

Do not bring mobile phones, dictionaries, portable computers, reference materials, or draft/scrap paper. Should you bring any of these items, you will be required to leave them outside the examination room in a secure area for the whole duration of the examination.


 

Question: Where will I take the examination?

Answer: Examination centres are opened based on examination requirements. A minimum of 15 nationals is usually required for an examination centre to be opened in the capital of a participating country. A preliminary list of examination centres is included in the application, allowing you to indicate your preference for where you would like to take the examination. Once the application period is closed, we will confirm whether you will be able to take the examination in the location of your choice. Within a limited period of time, which we will communicate to you, you can also let us know if you need to move to another examination centre. We make every effort to invite candidates to the centre nearest their place of residence. However, once the deadline for moving examination centres has closed, we will no longer be able to accommodate any changes in examination centre.

 


 

Question: I cannot see my examination centre listed on the Examination centres page.

Answer: First, double check that you have entered your application number correctly.

Your centre assignment will be sent to you via e-mail in addition to being listed on the site.

A preliminary list of examination centres is included in the screening questions for the application, where you can indicate your preference for where you would like to take the examination. Once the application period is closed, we will confirm whether you will be able to take the examination in the location of your choice. For a limited period of time, which we will communicate to you, you can also let us know if you need to move to another examination centre. Only after the application period has closed will the final list of examination centres be posted and only then will you be able to see where you are invited to take the examination.

Keep checking the Examination centres page for updated listings.
