All Edexcel specification A-Level Exams must be taken at a registered examination centre as a private candidate in a registered school or college. The finding of an examination centre and the booking of exams is the responsibility of the student. In December/January students are contacted and advised to start arranging their examinations.
The new Linear format examinations all need to be sat in a single examination window on completion of your studies. Examination fees need to be paid direct to your chosen exam centre. Prices for exams will vary depending on the exam centre’s administration costs so it is worth contacting a few centres to compare prices.
We offer course materials and tutor support although we don't offer the examinations. An Examinations Officer can assist any registered student with finding centres and dealing with coursework forms, but we do not book exams on behalf of students and it is the students responsibility to book their exams. If you would like to research exam centres prior to enrolment then you can visit the Edexcel page for private candidates.
Examination Dates and Exam fees:
A Level exams are only available in the Summer examination window (May/June) and examination fees need to be paid direct to your chosen exam centre. Prices for exams will vary depending on the exam centre's administration costs.
Students can decide to study over a one year or two year period (providing the specification and exams are available over that duration). You can sign up for a course at any time although course tutors set closing dates for students aiming for specific examination windows.
Please Note - Closing Dates for Examination Windows:
The nearest examination window we can accept learners for A Level Courses is now Summer 2025.
The closing date for courses which require coursework authentication (English Language, English Literature and History) is 15 September 2024.
The closing date for all other A Level Courses is 18 October 2024.
Once closing dates have passed, we can only accept learners aiming towards the stated examination window e.g. Summer 2026, or if more time is needed then learners can choose to aim for the next available exam window e.g. Summer 2027 providing the specification is still available. All learners are required to choose their intended exam window as part of their course application.
Each A Level Course will take approximately 700 hours of study to complete so if you are unsure that you can complete the course prior to the next available exam window then we recommend studying the course over a 2-year period.
