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 mohammednadeem@lbctuition.com.

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.

Access arrangements

In some cases, students have physical or mental conditions, or social circumstances which might require them to have access arrangements for their examinations. For example:

  • extra time
  • special aids
  • modified papers

Please notify us at the time of application if you need any such help.

Examination boards will expect current medical or other written evidence to substantiate the application, so please return this evidence with your application.

Please note the awarding bodies have a deadline for ordering modified papers.


Paper copies will be posted on the day of their receipt by our office.


Certificates will be posted to you as soon as we receive them, and are sent to the address used when enrolling for the exam – this is usually about ten weeks after the results are published. Please inform us if you change address: LBC Tuition accepts no responsibility for posting to an incorrect address.

Post-results enquiries

Post Results Services are available to candidates who have not achieved the grade(s) that they expected. While exam boards do everything they can to ensure the results they issue are accurate and reliable, grades do sometimes change on enquiries made after results. You may wish to pursue an Enquiry About Results (EAR).

It is imperative that LBC Tuition have a written request before processing a request. You will also need to pay the appropriate fee before enquiries can be made on your behalf.

You must fully understand that your marks for a given assessment may change following an enquiry and this could result in subject grades being lowered or raised.

There are three EAR services available:

  1. Clerical checks
  2. Review of marking
  3. Access to scripts 

Fees depend on which EAR you select.

For more information please contact us and we can help explain what your results mean and what options are available to you. Please note that there are deadlines for making these requests and these deadlines are strictly applied.

My daughter has been going here for a while and i think its the best decision I made sending her to LBC. She passed her 11+ test and Allhumdulliah is doing well at school.Both main owners are very understanding in general. I will  carry on sending her when she starts high school as well because it will help her if shes struggling with anything.
