    Yes, but there are 2 things to ensure:
    1. They both enter you for all the exams with the original UCI you had for your GCSEs and A levels (Your candidate number will change and be different for each centre but your UCi should never change.)
    2. None of the exams you want to take will clash. If you have 2 exams in the same session at different centres then it is unlikely that a member of centre staff would be prepared to escort you from one centre to the other (which is what has to happen).

    You have to talk to the centre. Everything is arranged directly with them.

    By session do you mean the same day?

    Same morning/afternoon. If you have 2 exams scheduled to start at the same time 0900 or 1330, on the same day then you have to be kept in isolation between the start of one end the end of the other. This would stop you moving centres.

    But if you had an exam at say 9:30 and then another exam at 14:00 that would be okay? Even at 2 different centres.
