ARK Private Candidates-Examinations

For students who are interested in taking exams early or looking to retake the exams, you can register with us as a Private Candidate. However with the new reformed GCSEs students will not be able to take exams early.

Students who require examination entry to subjects or levels which are not currently supported by their school or college, or students who are not at school are able to sit their examinations with us as a private candidate.

We are able to provide guidance to private candidates on a full range of examination services at GCSE, IGCSE and GCE A Level qualifications. We can help register for examinations with AQA, Edexcel, OCR, or WJEC boards with an approved examination centre. In addition we offer guidance on AEA and STEP Mathemetics exams as well as a range of University Entrance Examinations such as BMAT, ELAT, TSA, HAT, MAT, PAT, OLAT and MLAT.

It is essential to ensure that private candidates fully understand the specification requirements and the format of the examinations that they are expecting to take. If in doubt candidates can discuss this with one of the Academic Advisers at Ark Tuition before registering.

To sit for an examination as a private candidate, it is not required to follow a course at our centre. If academic support is required candidate can enroll in a suitable Ark Programme.

Please get in touch discuss further and potential candidates will have a meeting with one our Academic Advisers to understand the requirements.

We consider applications for AQA and Edexcel GCSE Mathematics at both the Foundation tier ( graded 1 - 5) and Higher tier ( graded 4 - 9). If you are a student or adult looking to do a GCSE exam, whether for the first time, or as a resit to improve your grade, we can help you with the process of registration. In addition we provide tuition prior to your GCSE exams, a range of well-prepared resources, mock tests, and a full exam preparation course.

Our courses for BMAT Exam

Section 1 tests problem solving, understanding argument, and data analysis and inference. We will be going through different types of question that have come up in past papers. Most of the questions in section 1 are either critical thinking, data handling or structured maths.

Section 2 is based on the knowledge typically included in non-specialist school Science and Mathematics courses. It tests your ability to apply this knowledge – possibly in unfamiliar contexts. Our course focus on mainly Physics and Biology.

Section 3 tests the capacity to develop ideas and to communicate them effectively in writing. We will be covering some of the questions that have come up in previous years, and brainstorming ideas on how best to answer them.
