See the registration process below:

Step 1: Complete your registration form

My examination board is Pearson Edexcel

Message for private candidates

Pearson will not run their International GCSE and International AS/A Level exams in the May/June 2021 series. Instead, Pearson will offer an alternative assessment approach.

When the new alternative arrangements are announced, we will work closely with Pearson to understand whether they allow the British Council to help private candidates receive grades. It is possible that the British Council may not be able to administer these arrangements. This is because the British Council doesn’t have any direct teacher contact with private candidates. 

As an alternative you can consider making an exam entry with a registered Pearson school. If you still want to register as a private candidate, we would like to request you not to make any payment now. We will only request to make the payment if the British Council can help you receive grades. We will notify you by email and SMS with a deadline for the payment.
