The information on this page is for centres who may be considering accepting private candidates, and for students who are considering entering our exams as a private candidate.
Our exams and assessments are mainly designed for candidates studying at schools and colleges registered with us as centres. However, some candidates who do not attend our centres or who are studying at a Cambridge International school registered as online may want to enter for exams. They are known as private candidates.
It is important that both centres and private candidates understand their responsibilities, these are listed below.

This includes Cambridge schools and Cambridge Associates.
