For Private Candidates

If you don’t attend a Cambridge school, you can still enter our exams as a private candidate.

We accept private candidates, so register with us by completing the form (see link) to take the Cambridge exams at our Centre. You are responsible for making your own arrangements to get to the exam on time and if you have any exam-related queries, such as special arrangements, please mention them in your application.

Some syllabuses or options are not available to private candidates, and this is detailed in the specific syllabus under the ‘availability’ heading in CIE’s own website.

Note that our Centre name or number will not appear on certificates issued to private candidates.
