Private Candidates

Members of the public who wish to write Cambridge examinations without being registered to study with a Cambridge institution, can do so as a Private Candidate. Please note: Cambridge does not permit Private Candidates to enter for subjects that include a coursework option. (Art and Design, Computing, Music, Drama).

British International Distance College assists Private Candidates to enter and write Cambridge International Examinations for IGCSE, AS level and A Level qualifications.

Private Candidacy is a service that we offer at our discretion. We reserve the right to accept or reject any application for examination entry.

Please be advised that we are only able to assist with the administration of entry to examinations at the College. Students should contact one of our colleges or a school in the event they wish to improve a grade or to seek guidance and advice on any academic queries.

There is a charge for academic consultations and other services for Private Candidates.

  • Academic Consultation / Advisory Service: R420.00 per hour Zoom session (discussion on best exam options etc.)
  • Topic Tutorials / Private Lesson: R520.00 per hour per Zoom session (subject and topic to be specified)
