Private candidates — information for centres

You may be approached by a private candidate, such as a home school learner, or their representative with a request that you act as their presenting centres.  As a presenting centre you would take on responsibility for all aspects of administering assessment for the candidate.

The nature of the arrangement and extent of your agreement with the candidate is your responsibly. However, when taking on a private candidate you must ensure:

Preparation, registration and entering

Coursework (internal assessment and/or externally assessed coursework)


*In 2021/22 discussion should also cover gathering evidence of attainment in case exams are cancelled. Wherever internal assessment takes place (whether part of the planned course or as contingency) the centre will be responsible for all aspects of the assessment.
