How the process works:
First step in the process is to complete an application form. We will need to know what qualifications you want to take including the Exam Board, Spec Code, Tier or Option in addition to your personal details.
Once your application is received; an invoice will be raised and sent to you. Payment can be made via electronic banking, or using a WorldPay secure link, or in cash in person.
Timetables and joining instructions are issued as soon as invoices are cleared and as soon as the exam board ‘basedata’ is released. This could be a few weeks after payment has been received, so don’t worry.
Exam will take place in the season you have entered for. They will be clearly listed on your timetable. All ‘clashes’ will be resolved for you at the centre.
At the end of the exam season, you will be issued results information giving you information about how and when you will receive results.
Results are issued on the Awarding Bodies published dates and the dates issued to you by us. All results are electronic unless a prior agreement has been made.
You will be notified when certificates have arrived at the centre and have been checked. We send certificates by Special Delivery (additional fee applies), 1st Class Royal Mail or you can come and collect by prior appointment. Certificates can take several weeks to arrive!
Our JCQ approved examination centres are located in the centre of Coventry and Bolton with fantastic access facilities and close to all major transport facilities.
We can offer assessment for Functional Skills, iGCSE, GCSE and A-Level qualifications. We are based within The Central Hall Methodist Church on Warwick Lane, Coventry and Victoria Hall, Knowsley Street, Bolton. There is a fabulous café on site that can provide a great breakfast, lunch and selection of drinks in Coventry. Local facilities are close by in Bolton. A quiet room is available if you want to gather your thoughts prior to your exam. Parents, chaperones, guardians, family or friends can wait in the café or waiting areas whilst you take your exam.
To make sure that you are happy with the whole process (we are fully aware of exam nerves and anxiety) feel free to arrange a visit before your exam. We can show you where you will sit and give you a few tips on how to stay calm. Just give us a call or send us an email.
