Are you looking for a private exam centre to take your exams? When deciding on an exam centre there are many considerations. Location is obviously key, but it is also good to know what the exam rooms are like and how many people will be taking the exams with you. Taking exams can be stressful but knowing the type of room you will be in and the facilities available can help ease some of the worry.

Our exam rooms

Here at 3A Tutors most of our exams, throughout the academic year, take place at our main centre 1a High Street, Staple Hill, Bristol, BS16 5HA.

We have two similar sized exam rooms that accommodate 25 candidates. We also have a computer suite that can accommodate a small number of candidates who require a word processor for their examinations.

The centre has a waiting room for candidates and parents, and there is plenty of unrestricted on-street parking adjacent to the centre. This is especially important on the day of your exam. The last thing you want to worry about is parking!

Venue locations

All our venues, including our main exam centre, are situated along the local Bristol ring road network for easy access if travelling by car. If you are using public transport, all our venues are also on the major Bristol city bus routes and are a short taxi journey from both Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway train stations.

All candidates that register with us are informed of the specific venue for their exams in the months prior to their chosen exam series, giving you plenty of time to plan your journey
