We have a pretty simple fee structure –
Candidate entry fee £20 (This is a one-off fee charged to each candidate.)
IGCSE/O level exam entry fee £125 per subject entry (£115 for NSW families.)*
AS/A2 exam entry fee £143 per subject entry (£133 for NSW families.)*
Please note that a full A level ( i.e. AS and A2 exams) is counted as two exams and will be charged accordingly. However, for students entering for a full A level exam in a single exam session (i.e. both the AS and A2 exams) there will be a discount of £30 per subject.
Our fee covers all standard costs**, including exam board fees, invigilation fees and the cost of sending out the final certificates by special delivery.
If a candidate withdraws from an exam session prior to the official exam board deadline, a fee of £60 per subject will be charged in order to cover exam boards and NSW administration costs. If a candidate withdraws from an exam session after the official exam board deadlines, full fees are payable, no refund will be made.
We are unable to accept applications from individuals who do not possess an email address.
* Please note that the £10 discount to NSWLearning families applies to examination subjects that have been studied with NSW.
** What our fees do not cover
If a student requires access arrangements such as extra time, amanuensis etc, we will require the candidate to attend a number of Normal Way of Working sessions at the exam centre. There is an additional charge for this. Please contact us to discuss any additional fees.
The IGCSE French specification requires the student to take an oral examination. This is undertaken at our exam centre by a qualified modern languages teacher. We make an additional charge of £30 per student for this oral.
Dates and Deadlines
We strongly recommend that registration forms are sent to us as soon as possible. We only have a limited number of spaces and in popular subjects such as English Language and Mathematics we do anticipate there being quite a demand.
Our deadline for receiving applications for the June 2020 session is Monday 3 February 2020.
Access Arrangements and Special Educational Needs
Processing applications for candidates who request access arrangements require a considerable amount of work involving a number of stages. For this reason, the deadline for receiving applications for candidates requiring access arrangements is Monday 18 November 2019. We are however a small exam centre with very limited accommodation and places are allocated on a first come first served basis. For this reason, we cannot guarantee places for all candidates who require access arrangements and early application is advisable.
