Enter CIC is a learning provider approved by Edexcel Pearson, AQA to conduct controlled assessments for private candidates.

We are able to take private candidates for many subjects that require a controlled assessment environment. However, you may also wish to consider the iGCSE as this offers the candidate the option of taking an exam-based route to the same qualification without the need for coursework or controlled assessment.

  1. You can only sit controlled assessments at an AQA approved school or college.
  2. Controlled assessments must be conducted by Enter CIC staff at The Enter Centre. We will:
    • accept you for all elements of task taking and task marking, including preparation and analysis prior to task taking
    • authenticate your controlled assessment
    • keep your work securely between sessions
    • mark your work (except the written controlled assessments in some foreign language subjects which are classed as ‘high level of control’ for task marking).
  3. Relatives of private candidates will not be able to conduct controlled assessments.
  4. You will have to be available on the dates and times specified by us to undertake all elements of the controlled assessment; the timings of sessions may vary.

We accept private candidates for an array of examination boards and we are able to accommodate most subjects of the GCSE and A Level curriculum as well as iGCSEs. A guide list is available here, or you can call us to discuss your requirements.
