Parents are responsible for arranging their child's examinations at their local registered examination centre. Cambridge Home School students study from every part of the globe and so it is not practical for the school to offer a single venue to sit examinations.. Consequently Cambridge Home School is not registered with Cambridge International Examinations but has partnerships with examination centres registered with Cambridge International Examinations, Edexcel, OCR, AQA and will support students in locating a suitable venue for sitting their written and practical examinations.
