As & A Level Entries

GCE Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and Advanced (A) level examinations for external candidates.

In Mathematics, we only consider applications for Edexcel examinations, not AQA, OCR or WJEC; in other subjects we consider applications from Private (External) Candidates for any AQA, Edexcel or OCR examination - any subject, any unit - provided no coursework, language oral, language listening comprehension test, DVD, science practical or Art and Design component of any description is involved (but please see * below).  We do not consider applications from Private (External) Candidates for WJEC (Welsh) examinations or Cambridge International (CIE) AS and A level examinations in any subject. 

*We do, however, consider applications from private candidates who have already submitted coursework for a previous examination session via their previous school or college, and would like the mark to be transferred ("carried forward") to a future entry.  We will do all the necessary administration – you do not even have to forward your previous coursework to us but you must provide us with a copy of your statement of results from the past examination session in which you submitted the relevant piece(s) of coursework.

No applications will be accepted for any AS or A level examinations in Art and Design, Computing, French, German, Italian, Media Studies, Music, Russian and Spanish. 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.



IMPORTANT: These examinations will NOT take place at 69 Notting Hill Gate but at 31 Jewry Street, EC3N  2EY - nearest stations are Aldgate, Tower Hill, Tower Gateway and Fenchurch Street.

We have now closed our entries for these examinations. All registered candidates should by now have received their Statements of Entry; if you have not received your Statement of Entry, please inform Mr Kahn (Examinations Officer) by e-mail via as a matter of urgency.

The entry fees are  £ 340-00 per AS or A level subject (for new linear specifications) or £ 180-00 per unit (for old "legacy" modular specifications).  PLEASE NOTE: applications for legacy units in Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Economics, English Literature, History, Physics, Psychology and Sociology 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.

IMPORTANT: we are unable to accept any further applications from potential external candidates requiring extra time in their May / June 2017 examinations.


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



We will start to process applications for these examinations on Tuesday 8th August..

Full details will be posted here in due course.



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 at 69 Notting Hill Gate, London W11 3JS 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 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.  Mr Kahn (the Examinations Officer) 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 at 69 Notting Hill Gate, W11  3JS 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 containing precise details of the examinations required to the Examinations Officer at

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