Q. What is the difference between a ‘course’ and an ‘examination’?
A. We offer both fast track courses and private candidate examination entry.
Courses involve regular group lessons that are structured and teach you the skills and topics you need to take an examination. The examination is then taken at the end of the course. If you want to be taught the material for the examinations, our fast track courses are ideal.
Examinations are the final assessments by which you gain a qualification. If you do not require any teaching and just want to sit the examination, you can do this by registering as a private candidate. Of course, you can still request some one-to-one tuition to help you prepare, if needed.
