HOW TO REGISTER FOR EXAMINATIONS AT DAVID GAME COLLEGE

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 book an appointment with our Examinations department and come to the college to register in person;  we do not do remote registrations for new private candidates (unknown to us) living in London, outside London or overseas.

To book an appointment please email exams@davidgamecollege.com or call 020 7221 6665 ext 116

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.  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 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 come in to 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.

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

  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

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. This invoice must be settled no later than the following working day (dated on the invoice).

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 book an appointment with our Examinations Officer to complete the registration process. 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, applications may be made by sending an e-mail containing precise details of the examinations required to the Examinations Officer at

exams@davidgamecollege.com

quoting your 4-digit candidate number in the subject field. An invoice will be sent to you by email. This invoice must be settled no later than the following working day (dated on the invoice).
