You can cancel your exam registration in ZEuS if you have decided that you do not want to sit a particular exam after all. If the exam in question provides various exam formats and periods (e.g. main and supplementary dates), you can switch to another exam option or cancel it altogether. Please be advised:

You can only cancel you registration during the registration and/or cancellation periods. Once the registration and/or cancellation period is over, you will no longer be able to register, cancel or change your exam registration in ZEuS, and the relevant buttons will no longer be visible. If you are unsure, please contact your examination office.

Read on to find out how to cancel an exam registration and select another exam option, so that you are no longer required to sit that particular exam.

Please note:
A TAN is necessary for examination registration. Read the Exam registration using a TAN article to learn more about where and how to generate a list with valid TAN numbers.
