Standard Exam Centres

For non-science exams you can choose from the following centres.

Science Exam Centres

Some science exams such as A-levels in Physics, Chemistry and Biology require a practical endorsement, known as a CPAC where you’re supervised in a recognised Lab, carrying out practical activities that test your skill or knowledge in a specific subject area.

Students can opt out of the practical endorsements. However, we advise all students to double-check if opting out of this A-level examination will affect future career or university opportunities. This experience can make all the difference in your future career.

Check out our A-level Practical Endorsement Guide.

Exam Fees

A-levels and GCSEs require exams in order to complete the qualification; exam fees are not included in the cost of the course.
To help you achieve optimum success in your exams, we only use the best A-level and GCSE exam centres with the best assessors. We aim to keep exam fees as low as possible and will always be honest about any additional costs during your enrolment. If you need us to to sit an exam for your course, please get in touch with our support team who will be able to help you get booked in.

Non-Examination Assessments

With some courses, such as A-level English, you’ll have non-examination assessments. This is just a fancy way of saying coursework or speaking tests that need to be marked and supervised separately but will contribute toward your final grade. If any of these are requirements of your chosen course, we can help you arrange these, too!

Choosing the right exam centre

Exam requirements differ among individuals, so you should pick the right centre for your own needs. Here’s a quick guide to some of the things to consider when selecting a venue to sit your exams:

  1. Convenience: Opting for a nearby exam centre can save time and reduce stress, particularly during exams. Easy access to the centre means less travel-related anxiety on exam days.
  2. Facilities: A suitable exam centre should provide comfortable seating, adequate lighting, and a conducive environment for concentration. Access to toilets and water facilities is also important during long exam sessions.
  3. Supervision Quality: Our reputable exam centres have experienced invigilators who ensure fair exam conduct according to regulations. This helps prevent disruptions, ensuring a smooth and fair testing environment.
  4. Accessibility Accommodations: For students with disabilities or special needs, our exam centres offer appropriate accommodations for most disabilities. This could include wheelchair access, extra exam time, or other support services to ensure equal opportunity for all students.

Selecting the right exam centre ensures a positive and conducive exam environment, ultimately impacting performance and outcomes. With all Oxbridge courses that require exams, we will help you every step of the way. If you’re unsure, please get in touch with our friendly Learning Advisors.
