Gen­er­al information

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.
