Exam Centre Equivalency Exam Guidance

Multiple slots – when you book a scheduled exam above we will email you within 1 working day offering multiple exam slots each week.

If you have a special date in mind mention it in the (optional) order notes that appear on the checkout page but be aware it may cost a little more.

Equivalency Exams are operating daily under the “new normal” social distancing regime. We have exceeded government expectations with an alternative venue at Suite 210, The Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, Islington, N1 0QH (closest tube station Angel ) using thermal temperature detectors, individual isolation rooms along with the mandatory facemasks, hand sanitisers and social distancing.

In addition we continue to use high quality examinations benchmarked on AQA and Edexcel GCSE syllabuses administered under JCQ (Joint for Qualifications) regulations, by trained invigilators and marked by a team of independent markers who have/or currently mark for the exam boards.

We are ensuring the needs of all students are being met safely and well within the required time!

School Based Equivalency Exam Testing

This option is used by some candidates where the headteacher is prepared to commit to the school hosting while following our security procedures and JCQ examination protocol to ensure the security and integrity of the equivalency examination.

If you have a school prepared to support your exam please check for more details by viewing the “You Choose Where” Option.

Embassy/ British Council based testing

We are working with embassies and the British Council for special cases where students are overseas and travel restrictions preclude their attendance to an Equivalency Examination in the UK.

Again these are ONLY offered where you have evidence of your training provider's approval for you to sit the examination this way. To maintain transparency with our training providers, the alternative option used is clearly recorded on the equivalency certificate with our standard unique security code for training provider’s reference.

General Exam Information

NB We also offer additional extra flexibility in English equivalency exam dates with the “You Choose When” option.
