Independent Assessment Centre, Tutors & Exams, gave hope to their candidates and in addition to over 500 displaced private candidates as the Covid-19 pandemic meant that exams across the country were cancelled.
The move came after the Secretary of State for Education, Gavin Williamson CBE MP, announced that schools and colleges were to be closed as part of the UK-wide lockdown measures that were implemented.
The team at Tutors & Exams have years of education experience, primarily in the exams sector, meaning they were able to spring into action to best devise a plan to help thousands of their own candidates in addition todisplaced private candidates that had been let down by other centres.
Chris Spraggett, Chief Executive of Tutors & Exams, said: ‘We worked tirelessly to ensure that every candidate that registered with us, displaced or learning through one of our partners, who wished to attain a calculated grade and had completed the necessary work, was able to. We know that this was not the case nationwide, but we are extremely happy and proud that we were able to help over 500 additional candidates with over 820 examination entries between them that had been displaced by other centres across the world. We wish all candidates the best of luck ahead of their results and especially thank Pearson, Eduqas, OCR, CAIE and AQA for their support throughout’
The team were able to help Distance Learning Providers and schools of displaced candidates as well as other private exam candidates so that they could attain a result in August 2020. Results day for AS/A-Level is 13th August and GCSE/iGCSE on 20th August 2020.
Tutors & Exams are the market leaders for private examinations across the UK. With centres currently located in Wimbledon, Coventry and Manchesterand Doncaster scheduled to open in September 2020, they are there to provide learners that wouldn’t normally have access to exams and assessments such as home-educated, distance learners, excluded learner and private candidates a safe, calm and welcoming environment.
