The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) has today published a list of centres that are willing to support private candidates, including home educated students and adult learners, to access GCSE, AS, and A level grades this year. (https://www.jcq.org.uk/private-candidates-summer-2021/)

The list covers centres offering GCSE, AS, and A level, while for other general, vocational, and technical qualifications, candidates should approach the awarding organisation directly for assistance.

The Department for Education is providing a private candidate support grant to centres of £200 per private candidate entry, so that candidates can access a centre at a similar cost to a normal exam year. Private candidates who have not yet found a centre to work with are encouraged to use this list to find a centre and make arrangements before the entry deadline of Monday 26 April.
