Preparing for ADIT

ADIT have helpfully listed study course providers alongside each module on this page
This will enable you to find out which providers can support you on your journey.

Look out for Extratax Training on the online list for Principles of International Tax, UK Taxation, US Taxation and Transfer Pricing!

If you’re not sure how to go about choosing a study provider, there are some helpful pointers here

If you are planning to self study, don’t be afraid to look for good quality support online.  Here are some places you could start:

Past papers and suggested/sample answers from past sittings are available here

The exam will take place online, via the Exam4 software.  You should download and install this well in advance of the exam, and take time to familiarise yourself with it.  Instructions, more information, and a helpful video guide can be found here

Sitting your ADIT exam

The exam timetable is published here

There’s a helpful summary on how to prepare for your exams on this page

We wrote a blog with some tips from students who have previously sat the ADIT exams online.  You can find that on our Extratax news page.

At present, ADIT exams are all held online.  ADIT have released a detailed set of rules to help you understand what is expected of candidates sitting their ADIT exam.  These ADIT online exam rules are here

ADIT have also prepared an Exam4 troubleshooting guide, in case you have technology troubles on the day.  You will find this here and, like the other guidance on this page, we recommend you read it well before the exam!

As you are aware, candidates may have access to permitted texts during the exam.  This is the guidance on what these are, and how you may use them

Thinking about the exam itself, it is helpful to know what to expect on the day…

Here is the step by step ADIT exam day guide

Make sure you launch Exam4 about an hour before your exam is due to start.  You need to give yourself plenty of time to get set up, to verify your ID, and to get comfortable!

Click here for instructions on starting your exam.

Click here for instrutions on submitting your exam when you have completed it.

We recommend you read through all of this information in detail well before the exam, so that you know exactly what is due to happen and when.

And afterwards?


For those of you then considering your next ADIT module, you now know where on the CIOT website to go to choose your module and register for the exam.

And if this exam is your last, we’re wishing you all the best for ADIT success!
