If  you’re an independent student completing your IGCSE, AS-Level or A-Level exams, you need to write exams at a Cambridge test venue that allows ‘private candidates’ to write there.
Remember: You are responsible for making your own arrangements with the school and must liaise directly with them.

We encourage you to make these arrangements as soon as possible because there may be limited space available for private candidates.

If you can’t find a school near you, please contact your local British Council office or Ministry of Education as they may be able to provide you with a complete list of schools in your country.
