Advanced Diploma in International Taxation ('ADIT') - Exam Structure

Qualification structure

The ADIT exams are held online using your own laptop or desktop computer, meaning you will now be typing your answers. 

Sitting online exams, students use a purpose-built exam application, Exam4, on their laptop or desktop computer. Students can sit the exam at a location of their choice, such as their home or office.

To enable students to sit exams in a flexible location, the Chartered Institute of Taxation ('CIOT') has published new rules for online exams. Familiarise yourself with the new regulations and equip yourself with the information you need for your exams here
