We are taking entries for November retakes now…

If you are a private GCSE candidate, you will need to find a school or college willing to enter you for your GCSE subject. ELS takes on private candidates for most GCSE exams except for laboratory required exams.

The Exam entry process for private students is as follows:
For Entries

1. Fill in the application forms below and send back to us asap
2. Add your exam entries (i.e. Unit Code, Subject Name if known)
3. ELS will then validate your entries and generate a payment amount and send back the details to you
4. Once you have made the payment, we will place your entries with the Exam Board
5. Closer to the exam, you will be sent your individual Statement of Entries and Exam Timetables
6. Please be aware that Late Entry fees will apply
During Exam:
1. Candidates must bring in their ID and arrive 10 minutes before the exam.


1. Results will be made available online on the day of results

If you make the entry before the closing date you will pay the standard entry fee. It may be possible to enter after the closing date, but you will be charged late entry fees or very late entry fees as well as the usual fees.
NOTE for November Exams: Please note that the November series is limited to GCSE English, English Language and Mathematics only. This means you cannot be entered for first sitting. Only students who have previously taken the qualification can be entered.
