Fees & Dates

Fees & Dates

We have a pretty simple fee structure –

Candidate entry fee                       £20 (This is a one-off fee charged to each candidate.)
IGCSE/O level exam entry fee         £109 per subject entry (£99 for NSW families.)*
AS/A2 exam entry fee                    £127 per subject entry (£117  for NSW families.)*

Please note that a full A level ( i.e. AS and A2 exams) is counted as two exams and will be charged accordingly. However, for students entering for a full A level exam in a single exam session (i.e. both the AS and A2 exams) there will be a discount of £50 per subject.

Our fee covers all standard costs**, including exam board fees, invigilation fees and the cost of sending out the final certificates by special delivery.

Candidate withdrawal
If a candidate withdraws from an exam session prior to the official exam board deadline, a fee of £60 per subject will be charged in order to cover exam boards and NSW administration costs. If a candidate withdraws from an exam session after the official exam board deadlines, full fees are payable, no refund will be made.

We are unable to accept applications from individuals who do not possess an email address.

* Please note that the £10 discount to NorthStarWorldwide families applies to examination subjects that have been studied with NSW.

**What our fees do not cover
If a student requires access arrangements such as extra time, amanuensis etc, we have to apply additional charges to cover increased costs e.g. longer invigilation or payment to a scribe.

Modern language IGCSEs require the student to take an oral examination. This is undertaken at our exam centre by a qualified modern languages teacher. We make an additional charge of £25 per student for this oral. This fee is paid in full to the MFL teacher for her services.

Dates and Deadlines
We strongly recommend that registration forms are sent to us as soon as possible. We only have a limited number of spaces and in popular subjects such as English and maths we do anticipate there being quite a demand. We can process application forms at any time.

Our deadline for receiving applications for the November 2017 session is Thursday 7th September 2017.

Access Arrangements and Special Educational Needs
Cambridge have brought the deadline for access arrangements forward by a considerable amount for the coming November 2017 exam session. If you believe that your child may require access arrangements you should contact us as soon as possible, in order to discuss your requirements.

Please note the following – 
For candidates to be given access arrangements such as extra time and the use of a word processor, there needs to be evidence that this is the candidate’s normal way of working.

Cambridge require that an access arrangements assessment be undertaken within THREE years of the exam session.
