Nottingham College offer an exam only service to private and external candidates for both on-screen and paper based examinations. We offer a range of specifications with all major examination boards/awarding bodies.
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.
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.
For more information and guidance please see:
- Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ)
- Guidance regarding access arrangements when a candidate changes centre
If you wish to sit in the summer 2020 series, the deadline to inform us of any exam access arrangements you may feel you are eligible for is Friday 29th November.
