Do you mean to put yourself in for the exam or to enter an examination room once the exam has started?
If you mean the former then you need to contact the exam board or look at their website as they have a timetable of when the last dates of entry are.

If it's the latter, then if at uni, it depends on the uni, but I think it's usually 30 minutes, but check with your uni. If it's public exams (GCSE, A levels), then I believe it's 30 minutes as well, but check with your exams officer!

I did mean the former, but the only table I can find gives the dates past which late fees have to be paid - rather than the final possible date at which the candidate can be entered, past which it wouldn't be possible for the physical exam paper to reach the school in time to do the exam. Any ideas where I could find that out/what it might be?

I meant the former - the last date past which it is physically impossible for the exam paper to reach my school before the exam takes place.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated

I think in exceptional circumstances they do allow later entry.

Thanks, but doesn't that table only state the point after which late/very late fees must be paid, as opposed to the point after which it isn't possible for the exam paper to be sent to the school in time? I think you can still be entered for the exam after the 19th of April (the 'very late' deadline), but would have to pay higher fees. If I take an exam that nobody else in the school is taking, I presume it will take time for the exam paper to be sent to my school - it's that length of time that I would like to find out.

Sorry, I misread the heading! I can't seem to find the final final date on their site, so might be worth asking your exams officer if no one else here knows. I couldn't find anything about the final final date in the following docs, but you might want to take a look just in case I missed it - sorry I couldn't be more help!
