Please be advised that coursework requirements differ from one subject to the other and from one  examination board to another. You are advised to check carefully the coursework requirements for the particular subject you are taking

If students want to do the coursework with us, they need to select this option on the online booking form. 

  • Some examination boards do not allow private candidates to enter the coursework option in some subjects. If this is the case, an extra written paper or a practical examination may be taken instead.
  • Some coursework has to be marked by the examination board, and some by the tutor. " Manchester Examination Centre"  will be able to provide tutors (at an additional charge) to support your coursework submission.

Private Candidates taking AQA subjects which have a coursework component must fill a Private Candidate Coursework Information Form and send it to the College at the same time as you make your entry on the Exams Portal and the administration fee is submitted.  Your entry will not be processed until the Form is received.

The Private Candidate Coursework Information Form is available on the AQA website.

Externally Assessed Coursework

All externally assessed coursework is marked by the examination boards. All coursework must be handed in to Manchester Examination Centre at the latest deadline of April 20th. However, we recommend that you submit your coursework as early as possible. The coursework submission must be accompanied by the completed and signed Authentication or Private Candidate Record Form.

Manchester Examination Centre  will then post the coursework accompanied by the form to the examination board.

Internally Assessed Coursework

Coursework and completed Authentication Form or Private Candidate Record Form (Private Candidates only) should be submitted by 30th March .

Please note there is an additional cost for one of our tutors to support your coursework submission and to mark it prior to moderation.

Work handed in later than 30th March will incur a £40.00 late fee.

Please retain a copy of all your coursework.
