Macclesfield Tutorial College Private Examination Centre



The Macclesfield Tutorial College website:
contains everything you need to know about taking exams as a private candidate with us – the application process, fees and discounts, access arrangements, exam locations, and much more. The information there will be more current and we advise that you use that site instead.


What does our private examination centre provide?

We are an approved centre for the AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and CIE examination boards. We accommodate all the standard subjects, and will try to accept entries for the less popular subjects too – just ask.

At the examination centre, you are able to take Functional Skills, GCSE, IGCSE and GCE (AS and A Level) examinations. The centre has the facilities for Non-Exam Assessments such as science practicals (including the A Level Science Practical Endorsement) and most language speaking examinations.

We accept private candidates taking examinations or tests at our examination centre from any part of the World. If you can get here, we will look after you.

“All the staff including the examiners were very welcoming and made me feel at ease. They clarified any concerns I had and were very helpful. If I pursue my Spanish A Level I’d know where I’d want to do it”.  – Madeline
