Private Candidates pursue a course of study independently but take an examination and/or assessment at an approved WJEC examination centre (school or college). Private candidates are responsible for making appropriate arrangements with a school or college that is prepared to:
(a) make the necessary examination accommodation available and;
(b) conduct, supervise, mark and authenticate any non-examination units/components
Private candidates should find a school/college before they start their studies. We can only accept entries for candidates who have an arrangement in place.
We do not hold records of the schools/colleges that are willing to make arrangements for private candidates. If you experience difficulty locating such a school/college in your area, we would advise that you contact your Local Education Authority for advice.
Further information relating to the procedures for private candidates can be found in this booklet.
