The AEC approved examination centre

Academic Enrichment Centre is a JCQ and CIE approved examination centre based in Hall Green, Birmingham. At present we are registered with all of the main examination boards for GCSE, IGCSE, A Level and Cambridge Pre-U qualifications.

We have been offering examinations to private candidates for many years and are proud to offer such a professional and high-standard service. We accommodate private candidates for all examinations of AQA, CIE and Edexcel examination boards.

We are also able to support students who have sat exams at previous sessions and are looking to re-sit to improve their grades.

Unique Candidate Identification (UCI)

If you are either re-taking an exam, or have previously taken GCSEs or A-Levels previously, then this is probably the most important piece of information that the Examinations Officer will require. It enables the examination board to collate any past results with any retakes to give the candidate a new overall grade.

Please note that this is extremely important for candidates who are at schools/colleges in Year 13, who are re-taking their AS level qualifications in order to try and achieve improved grades for University applications or, for students taking a “gap” year and wishing to improve on A2 results.
