GCSE & IGCSE Examination Entry

3A Tutors Ltd specialises in providing private candidate examination entry to GCSE and IGCSE examinations as offered through all the UK’s major examination boards. These examinations are available to all students, including home-educated, distance-learning, and mature students living in the UK and overseas.

Private (external) GCSE and IGCSE candidates are not required to enrol or to attend any classes or tutorials with us to sit their examinations at our centre.

We have reached our maximum capacity for AQA, Edexcel/Pearson, OCR and WJEC Eduqas GCSE Mathematics and Edexcel/Pearson IGCSE Mathematics for the May/June 2020 examination series.

Alternative options available at our centre include taking Cambridge (CAIE) IGCSE Mathematics in the May/June 2020 examination series; AQA, Edexcel/Pearson, OCR or WJEC Eduqas GCSE Mathematics in the November 2020 examination series or Edexcel/Pearson Functional Skills Mathematics Level 2 on a day that suits you. Please contact us for further information regarding any of these three options.

The following subjects are available as GCSEs through our centre:

Maths, English Literature, History, Psychology, Sociology, Religious Studies, Business, Economics, Statistics, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Chinese, Arabic, Ancient History, Classical Civilisation, Classical Greek, Latin and Biblical Hebrew.

With the exception of the subjects listed above, assessment for all other GCSE subjects requires some form of endorsement, coursework, or practical assessment to be completed. For this reason, almost all private candidates opt instead to sit the IGCSE (the International GCSE that is accepted as equivalent to the GCSE qualification across the world) as this qualification is based solely on examinations.

The IGCSE is becoming ever more popular and has been adopted by many private schools in the UK.
