Our aim is to help students of all ages, backgrounds and circumstances to achieve recognised qualifications in the subject/s of their choice.
We have developed 3 guides; the Guide for External candidates, the Exams Series Guide and the Ready Checklist Guide. It is important you read these guides before applying. You will be asked to agree to the Terms and Conditions mentioned in the Guide for External candidates when applying.
Many subjects require some form of non-exam assessment (NEA), e.g. a project, coursework, an extended piece of research or a presentation. We are able to help you with this, by arranging an assessment with one of our tutors. The exact details will depend on the subject requirements.
If you would like to book an exam that has an NEA, we advise you apply as early as possible. See our Non Exam Assessment (NEAs), Coursework & Speaking test page for more information.
If you would like to take a qualification, we recommend you check the subject
