External Examination Centres

External Examination Centres

If you are home-schooling your child, you may be considering the possibility of your son or daughter taking GSCE examinations at an external examination centre.

Norfolk County Council have provided contact details of some external examination centres that are able to accept external candidates.

However, it is important to keep in mind when approaching an EEC, that they are not obliged to take any external candidates. It is you who need their help and cooperation, so you will need to follow their requirements carefully and to the letter.

It is important to decide what examinations your child will be taking and this may be based on your child’s future aspirations. Once you have identified the examinations your child will be taking you may find it useful to look at the specifications for each subject.

In terms of External Examination Centres (EEC), it is important to make sure you are studying the correct exam board syllabus (i.e. each EEC, can only sit students for the precise Exam Board/s), so once you have found a EEC willing to offer you a place to sit your exam as an external candidate, then you will know which exam board syllabus you will need to study for.

Specifications can be found on the exam board websites.  Here are a few exam boards that offer iGCSEs:
