  • What Do I Do Now?
  • What Do I Do Now?
  • Be accurate with registration; no changes on test date. Must upload a photo for registration.

    ISM is a private test center which means that our students must have the test center code in order to register to test here.
    Sometimes students get confused and don’t see ISM so register for British School and then show up at ISM the day of the test to change their test site. Not allowed any more. Really important everything is correct at time of registration
