HOW TO REGISTER FOR EXAMINATIONS AT DAVID GAME COLLEGE

REGISTERING ONLINE 

 

Please read our TERMS AND CONDITIONS for potential Private 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,   https://www.davidgamecollege.com/238/terms-and-conditions. Also please read our Privacy Notice on how we use your personal data and how long we retain it.

 

In order to process your application we ask that you request a Private Candidate Online Application Form. The DGC Exams Office will send you log in details to access the application form. Please ensure that you have completed the form accurately, particularly with regards to the exam board and the subject code. The college will not accept any responsibility for errors and omissions on your part.

 

Please note that you must also submit the following documentation along with this Private Candidate Application form:

·         Passport sized photograph

·         Valid photographic ID (passport / driving license etc.) 

·         Most recent Statement of Results (incl. Unique Candidate Identifier number - UCI no.)

 

Please note – AQA  and OCR A level & GCSE certificates have the UCI number printed on the official certificate as well as the Statement of Results which can be uploaded when completing the DGC application form,  Pearson Edexcel does not – only on their Statement of Results. Please do not upload Pearson Edexcel official certificates as evidence of your UCI number.

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 call or 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.

 

So please ensure you have the necessary documentation available when applying online. Once you have submitted your application form, please allow time for the attachments to upload. You will then receive your private candidate examination invoice, which would need to be paid by the date on the invoice.

Thank you for your co-operation. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our exams office on exams@davidgamecollege.com

Please bring with you your most recent official Statement(s) of Results.  If you have more than one (e.g. 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 call or 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. valid passport page showing personal data and photograph
    ii. Valid driving licence showing photograph
    iii. any other valid photographic proof of identity
  3.      Most recent Statement of Results (incl. Unique Candidate Identifier number - UCI no.)

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

 

Thank you for your co-operation. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our exams office on exams@davidgamecollege.com or 020 7221 6665 ext 116.
