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. Also please read our Privacy Notice on how we use your personal data and how long we retain it.

If you are applying to be a Private (External) Candidate for the first time at David Game College, you will need to complete the EXTERNAL EXAMINATION ENQUIRY application below.

For more information please contact us or call 020 7221 6665 ext 116

One of the examinations team will then contact you via telephone to check the details of your enquiry (correct codes, documentation etc) and will send you the link for the DGC Private Candidate Online Registration Form if everything is in order. 

Please ensure you have your most recent Statement(s) of Results to upload.If you have more than one (eg one from AQA, one from Edexcel) it is important that you upload 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 or college 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 our examinations team when you register and they 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 documentary evidence verifying that UCI number.

Please have these documents ready to upload:

  1. two passport-sized photographs signed and dated on the back
  2. the original document and a photocopy 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

Once we have verified all your documentation , we will send you an invoice which will explain how you need to pay via bank transfer. This invoice must be settled no later than the following working day (dated on the invoice).
