Autumn 2021 Exam Series Update
Who is eligible to sit autumn exams?
Students will be eligible to enter for this series if they’ve received a grade this summer, or if an exam board reasonably believes they would have entered for the exams in summer 2021, had they taken place.
We will require evidence of a statement of results or statement of entry from the summer 2021 exam series before we are able to make any exam entries for the Autumn 2021 series. Please note, this does not apply to i-GCSE qualifications.
Unfortunately we do not accept entries with the Awarding Body CIE.
We cannot accept candidates for controlled assessment, coursework units, oral and practical units. However, if you have previously taken any of the above, and the specification(s) allows you to carry these marks forward, we will accept entries on any remaining unit(s).
If you are looking at a specification that does include any of the above units you may wish to contact the relevant awarding body to seek an alternative specification.
Functional Skills English
We can only enter for on-demand Functional Skills English exams if you have completed the speaking and listening component previously, and can provide us with evidence of this.
Evidence of an assessment is required in order to request JCQ approval for exam access arrangements.
Previous evidence of an assessment at another centre cannot be accepted, unless the previous centre has an ‘established working relationship’ with Nottingham College. Please note Nottingham College do not currently have an established working relationship with any other centre.
If you would like to request an assessment, please request this in your initial enquiry. A member of our Learning Support Team will then contact you to discuss this further. A fee of £250.00 will be charged and must be paid in advance of the assessment.
