What we offer
We are an approved centre for the AQA examination board. Private candidates/students can now carry out their GCSE examinations at our centre. We accommodate most of the standard subjects.
Please note we accept candidates for exams only. Non-exam assessments (NEAs) e.g. coursework/controlled assessment/practical assessments are carried forward only. If you did NEAs and it was the same specification LBC Tuition use, you can ‘carry forward’ your results. Please indicate this on your entry form, confirming the unit code.
Any advice given by staff of LBC Tuition by any means is given without prejudice. It is your responsibility to ensure entries are correct and that correct procedures are followed for the exams.
How to apply
To apply for entry to examinations as a private candidate, please complete the LBC Private Candidate Form and book an appointment with our Examinations Officer by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need help to complete the form, read our information guide.
It is your responsibility to provide the correct exam codes for all exams you wish to be entered for. LBC Tuition accepts no responsibility for private candidates entering incorrect codes. The codes can be found in the subject specification.
