Message for Private Candidates
We are aware that there are some cases where students leave schools and then study at private tuition centre before making exam entries as private candidates. Please make sure that you are aware of the challenges during ongoing pandemic before you decide to enter as a private candidate.
- for greater range of options during the pandemic, as well as for academic support in preparing for their exams, British Council preference is that all candidates under 18 years old register for their exam entry through a British Council partner school
- in case of cancellations, private candidates will not be able to participate in any assessed grades processes arranged by UK examination boards
- in case of cancellations, private candidates will need to withdraw their entry and enter for next series or attach to a British Council partner school (paying applicable school admission fees at the last minute, subject to availability of admissions at short notice)
- British Council partner schools benefit from ongoing Teacher Training and other support to develop a quality delivery towards UK qualifications and therefore it is in the interests of students to continue and complete their course of study at a British Council partner school
We wish all students academic success.
