External Exam Candidates

Lincoln Minster School welcomes external exam candidates, from home-schooled students taking their first GCSEs to students who need to sit exams for University applications or to help them in their careers.

We offer IGCSEs, GCSEs and AS/A Levels in most subjects and being a small centre means that we can be very flexible. The school is conveniently located in Lincoln making it ideal for those in the surrounding area or from further away.

Please have a look at the FAQs for further details on the process of entering for exams as a private candidate.

The parent of a recent private candidate has described the whole experience of exams at Lincoln Minster School as ‘nothing but positive’ and said that her son had been ‘supported in his efforts by true professionals’.
