# Applications for OCR English Literature will only be considered from candidates who have already received an AS or A level grade in this subject (via OCR in 2017), and who want to retake the written papers in 2018 with the 2017 coursework mark carried forward. A valid 2017 Statement of Results will need to be shown to us.

No applications will be accepted for subjects and boards not listed here. HOWEVER, if you want to take RUSSIAN, please contact Ms Aina Shareefy via 020 8575 1462, 07769 313090 or ; this puts you in touch with the Znaniye Centre.



We will start to process applications for these examinations (in the subjects and boards shown above) on Tuesday 8th August.

The entry fees are  £ 175 per AS level subject, £ 195 per A level subject (for new linear specifications) or £ 90-00 per unit (for old "legacy" modular specifications), with a deadline of 4.30 pm on Friday 1st February 2018. After this deadline, we will consider late entry applications subject to available space; the fees for late entries will be £ 350 per AS level subject, £ 390 per A level subject (for new linear specifications),  and £ 180 per unit for legacy specifications. Applications for Edexcel AS/A level legacy units in Geography will only be considered from candidates who have already cashed-in their previous marks and hence have received an overall grade for the subject - these candidates must be able to show us a previous Statement of Results verifying the overall grade awarded previously.

PLEASE NOTE:  All applications from prospective external (private) candidates who require extra time in their examinations MUST be received no later than Friday 29th September, supported by valid documentation; please see the detailed notes on this in the Terms and Conditions section.


There are no AS or A level examinations in January 2018.



Please read our TERMS AND CONDITIONS for potential Private (External) Candidates BEFORE making an application. When you register, you will be asked to sign a declaration to the effect that you have understood the Terms and Conditions, in particular that there will be no refund of entry fees in the event of subsequent cancellation..

If you are applying to be a Private (External) Candidate for the first time at David Game College, you will need to come to the college to register in person;  we do not do remote registrations for new private candidates (unknown to us) living outside London or overseas.

Times of registrations of entries for May / June 2018  AS / A level examinations are as follows:  

Week commencing Monday 7th August  (there is no need to book an appointment, simply turn up at any of the times shown below):

Tuesday 8 August 2.30 pm - 4.30 pm
Wednesday 9 August 2.30 pm - 4.30 pm
Friday 11 August 2.30 pm - 4.30 pm

Please do not come into David Game College on Monday 7th August or Thursday 10th August to register for examinations as a private (external) candidate, as we will not be processing any applications on these two days.

Week commencing Monday 14th August  - times for registrations will be posted here in due course. The above table is updated every Friday, showing the registration times for the following week.

You should go to Reception  and ask for an entry form for private candidates - please make it clear which level you are applying for (AS/A level) so that you are given the correct entry form.  One of the examinations team will then check the details on the form (correct codes, documentation etc.) and will register the entry if everything is in order.  For students aged up to and including 18 only, it is permissible for the student's parent or guardian to come in without the student as long as all the required documentation - including correct entry codes - is brought in.

Please bring with you your most recent official Statement(s) of Results - not certificates.  If you have more than one (eg one from AQA, one from Edexcel) it is important that you show us all of them, even if they relate to subjects you will not be taking in your future examinations.  This is to enable us to check your Unique Candidate Identifier (UCI) and to resolve any associated problems (for example, if your previous school has made the mistake of allocating you a new UCI when you already had one from elsewhere).

Note: if you have never taken a GCSE / IGCSE / AS / A level examination before (and hence do not have a Statement of Results from a previous examination session), please do not worry - just mention this to Mr Kahn when you come in to register and he will allocate you a UCI number.  The same applies to mature students who last took a public examination ten or more years ago.  It is vital that you tell us if you already have a UCI number allocated by another school or college, and provide us with documentary evidence verifying that UCI number.

When you come in to register for examinations, please bring with you:

  1. two passport-sized photographs
  2. a photocopy (not the document itself) of one of the following forms of identity:
    i. passport page showing personal data and photograph
    ii. driving licence showing photograph
    iii. any other photographic proof of identity
  3. your most recent examination Statement(s) of Results as explained above.
  4. full and accurate details of the entry codes for the examinations you wish to take.

Please do NOT bring payment with you when you come to register for your examinations; once we have verified all your documentation, we will give you an invoice which will explain how you need to pay via online banking.

Note: under no circumstances will we accept first time applications solely by telephone or e-mail - the student (or parent/guardian in the case of students aged up to and including 18) must come into our examination office to register.  Students living outside London are advised to look for centres closer to home, although if you are able to travel to London in person to register we will of course consider the application. 

For students who have already taken examinations as a private candidate in a previous session at David Game College (and hence whose details we already have), applications may be made by sending an e-mail to the Examinations Officer via  

quoting your 4-digit candidate number in the subject field.  A reply will be sent explaining how payment may be made over the telephone.
