You can do this up to 48 hours before the exam date. If it is less than 48 hours before the exam date, any cancellation will be subject to our Withdrawals, Non-attendance and Fee Refund Policy.

Can I amend a candidate's details (name, instrument, grade or access arrangements) once I've booked and paid for their exam?

However, if the booking period is still open you can log in, cancel the candidate's exam, and then re-book with the correct details.
