The IDE Entrant grade exists to give a formal connection with the Institute while the candidate is preparing to prove their competence in the examinations. Entrants may enjoy that grade for two years, during which time they must sit and pass the examinations.
Members with professionally diagnosed medical conditions that make it difficult to participate in a written examination should contact the National Secretary so that special arrangements (extra exam time or an amanuensis) may be made to help them.
IMPORTANT: The examinations must be passed by 30 April following the second anniversary of admission to the Entrant Grade.
