Home educators are responsible for arranging their child’s exams.
Not all exam centres will accept home educated candidates, so it is best to check and contact them to register your interest and find out more information such as which exam boards, subjects and levels they offer.
Asking on local or main facebook pages such as Home Education UK Exams and Alternatives is a good start as you can find out which exams centres have worked well, and which ones haven’t and lots of other useful information.
Contacting them early, especially if you will require any Access Arrangements, is a good idea as certain subjects will book up early.
We are now a learning partner of Tutors and Exams, who worked extremely well with us this year enabling us to provide predicted grades for some of our students, which have centres in Coventry, Bolton, Wimbledon and also opening soon in Doncaster and all Absolute Maths students can get the Partner Entry Fee on the published prices when we are mentioned.
You would need to mention us on the first contact form you send.
Tutors and Exams provides examination and assessment facilities primarily aimed at private and home educated candidates. The company was setup six years ago by two former Examination Officers with over 25 years’ experience in education administration and is now an established and valued examination venue.
Tutors and Exams currently have three examination centres located in; Bolton, Coventry, Doncaster (scheduled to open Sep 20) and London. All are approved for examination delivery by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ).
In addition to our examination centres we also have a dedicated Science laboratory based in Birmingham with the ability to deliver A Level/GCSE Science practical’s all year round (consecutive four day course for each subject, or intensive two day course over weekend). We also have access to another science laboratory located in a London school available to offer Science practical’s outside of term time.
In 2019/20 Tutors and Exams delivered examination assessment to over 2,400 learners. We cater for 95% of all GCSE/GCE and IGCSE subjects alongside Functional Skills and have a dedicated SEN specialist who can assist in organising access arrangements if required.
We work in partnership with many large, respected distance learning providers, and very much value the relationship we have with them to deliver high quality assessment to their candidates. We also accommodate private training organisations delivering qualifications to sizeable cohorts geographically spread throughout the UK.
We provide examination facilities for a growing number of universities to facilitate their distance learning programmes. The University of London, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh Napier University, Loughborough University and Edinburgh Business School are already valued clients. Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing is also available too.
