Exam only service

Exam Hero

Central College Nottingham offers an exam only service to private candidates for both online 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.

Unfortunately due to the high volume of internal entries we are unable to offer GCSE English or GCSE Mathematics to private candidates. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
