Retake options at Acorn House College

Students wanting to retake A Levels or GCSE exams in West London have  a number of options at Acorn House College:

  • Full two-year retake with the College
  • One-Year Fast-Track course with the College
  • Resitting the exam at the College as an external candidate

Acorn House College offers external candidates the opportunity to sit their GCSE, IGCSE or A Level exams at our highly-accessible West London College in Southall. We have many years of experience as an examination centre for private candidates. Examinations take place in our main college building and we never ask candidates to sit examinations on different sites or at premises away from the College.

Acorn House College accepts private candidates for A Level examinations from the following examination boards:



For students wishing to sit or resit their GCSEs, Acorn House College offers some GCSE and IGCSE exams from the following examination boards:


  • GCSE/IGCSE: £150 per subject
  • Legacy A Level Unit (i.e. AS/A2): £90 per unit
  • New Specification A Level Subject: £200 (AS Level) / £300 (A Level)

Registering with us as an external candidate

We appreciate that taking examinations, especially in an unfamiliar setting, can be very stressful and so we will do everything we can to ensure that the process is hassle-free and that candidates are made to feel welcome and relaxed when they come to us.  Even our largest exam rooms are small compared to most centres and we will rarely accommodate more than twenty-five students per exam room.

To avoid additional stresses during the lead up to exams, we aim to make the process as simple as possible for any external candidate wishing to take an exam with Acorn House College. If you would like to sit an exam with us, simply fill in the ‘Enquire Now’ form and provide some very basic details, with your UCI number, and we will handle the registration process for you.
