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.
GCSE/IGCSE Maths and English
For Summer 2022 exams, we can no longer accept private candidates for GCSE and IGCSE Maths and English as we have now reached our capacity.
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
