* There is no basedata available for PLSC.

Please submit entries using EDI or Edexcel Online. Edexcel Online is available for use from the time 
that the basedata is released for a particular examination series.
You need to register students for Digital Applications (CiDA/DiDA) before submitting entries. We will
automatically register any student for Digital Applications (CiDA/DiDA) if no registration exists, on the
lowest available programme of study. This may result in higher entry costs over the study period. 

1.2 Late entry fees explained


After the entry deadline, late fees will be incurred. From the late fee date, the entry (subject or unit) fee
is doubled. The entry fee is trebled from the high late fee date. 
Amendment fees will be charged if you change a subject/unit option or tier from the high late fee date.
You will not incur a fee for changing candidate details (such as name amendments) unless a certificate
has been issued. Amendment fees are usually double the cost of a unit or subject entry fee (in addition
to the original entry fee). 

1.3 Late cash-in fees


A fee is charged for any cash-in request made after the entry deadline.

1.4 Refunds
Any subject or unit fee will be refunded automatically up to the high late fee deadline. If you withdraw
an entry after this deadline, no refund will be issued without supporting medical evidence.
If a late entry is withdrawn by the high late fee deadline, only the entry fee is refunded.
