Supporting Private Candidates
As part of the Pearson qualifications website, we provide an interactive map with details of centres across the country that offer our qualifications. Students use the interactive map to help them find a centre that will accept them as a private candidate .
A private candidate can be:
• a part-time student
• someone studying evening courses, a correspondence course or distance learning course
• someone who is being home-schooled or is self-taught
They usually aren't enrolled full-time with a school, college or training provider and only require a centre where they can sit the examination.
The following questions will help us keep the information on our website up to date and ensure that you’re happy for us to make your centre information available to private candidates.
You should only complete the following survey if you work within a UK centre and are authorised to do so by your head of centre. You will need to have an Edexcel Online account in order to continue.
