The fees and exam dates for 2022/23 have been finalised by the ICB. Last year the ICB introduced online exams. Overall the online exams have been extremely successful. When these exams were introduced, students were not too keen on the idea BUT many students soon preferred online exams to paper exams.
Due to COVID restrictions, the ICB had some issues hosting exams at the physical venues and they are anticipating further lockdowns in the future.
Many exams were cancelled or postponed due to the lack of venues available. This was frustrating and to some disruptive BUT the ICB managed to introduce online exams, which they will still offer. They will also still offer paper exams for each subject at least two times in the year.
Are There Any Changes To The New Exam Dates?
These are the 5 important things to look out for:
- You can write the paper exam twice a year. This is on top of the online exams.
- Online exams will only be in the afternoon. This will allow the colleges to use their IT labs.
- You can postpone your exams. From online to paper exams and vice versa.
- Only 10 main physical ICB distance venues will be used. Further information will be provided as soon as it is available.
- Saturday face-to-face exams will be discontinued

What Will The New Exam Timetable Look Like?
Registration For The Exams
The registration for the April 2022 exams will open in January 2022. Make sure you stay updated and informed by checking out our page or ICB’s page.
Venues For Paper Exams
The physical venues still need to be confirmed. Once the venues have been confirmed, we will inform our students or our students can go to the ICB’s page.
These venues are extremely limited due to COVID restrictions and therefore it is important to register for the exams early to avoid disappointment.
Once the examination venues are full the ICB will not be able to take more bookings for that particular venue. Remember that you can always book an online sitting.
Portfolio of Evidence (POE) Completion Dates
The Portfolio of Evidence (POE) should be completed a week before the exams start. This will allow the ICB to perform certain administrative functions before students start their exams. Students then get the opportunity to focus on preparing for the exams.
If you have not completed your Portfolio of Evidence (POE) before the due date, you will not be allowed to write the exams.
New Features For The Portfolio Of Evidence
The new Portfolio of Evidence (POE) now has a new feature that has step-by-step instructions on how to prepare for the online examination
2022/23 ICB Exams Fees
The ICB has announced that the exam fees have only slightly increased. The exam fees are now R730 per exam and R400 for the annual exam fees.
Whether you register to write the exam in January, August or December, each student still has to pay the annual fee of R400.
