Exam only service

Exam Hero

Nottingham College (formerly Central College Nottingham and New College Nottingham) offer an exam only service to private and external candidates for both on-screen and paper based examinations. We offer a range of specifications with all major examination boards/awarding bodies.

Please note: we cannot accept candidates for controlled assessment, coursework units, oral and practical units. However, if you have previously taken any of the above, and the specification(s) allows you to carry these marks forward, we will accept entries on any remaining units(s).

If you are looking at a specification that does include any of the above units you may wish to contact the relevant awarding body to seek an alternative specification.

This exam-only service does not include access to Nottingham College resources such as Learner Resource Centres, tuition sessions and additional learning support. 

Please note: We cannot offer access arrangements to private exam candidates, as regulated by the Joint Council of Qualifications (JCQ).
