FAQ's

What’s the difference between GCSE and IGCSE?

IGCSE exams do not include coursework which contributes marks to the final GCSE grade.
IGCSE exams can be taken abroad, whereas the GCSE exams may only be taken in the UK.
As national qualifications, the GCSE and the IGCSE are on a par and fully recognised for acceptance on to A Level or other courses. However, you are advised to check with any professional body or further education institution to which you are thinking of applying (e.g. for PGCE or nursing) to make sure that they know what an IGCSE qualification is and are happy to accept it. A few places are a bit behind the times! If you encounter any problems, please contact us we can always put them right.

Do I need any qualifications to study with eDistance Learning?

Previous qualifications are not necessary for many of our courses. Our friendly Student Advisers have many years of experience in helping to guide students towards the most suitable courses and our personalised enrolment process is designed to give you the best possible advice with honesty and absolutely no high pressure selling.
For most GCSE/IGCSEs you do not need to have any prior knowledge of the subject. However, if you would like to enrol to study English Language GCSE/IGCSE you will need some experience of writing and reading English. Our GCSE and IGCSE English Language courses are not designed as courses in English as a second language, but to meet the requirements of exam board specifications that aim to assess native speakers of English.
Similarly, our IGCSE in French and Spanish require the students to have a basic understanding of the Language.

What date will my exam be?

Dates for all exams are published on the relevant exam board’s website. Check your exam specification in the Introduction to your course, go to either http://www.aqa.org.uk orhttp://www.edexcel.com and then find the relevant series (summer or winter) in the exam timetable. Exam dates are not negotiable even for the holiday of a lifetime or hospitalisation.
Please be aware that summer exams are often referred to as “June” exams. This can be misleading as many summer exams now take place in May as well.

Can I study from abroad?

Yes you can! Bear in mind that you will need to pay additional postage and packing fees for sending course materials outside of the UK. Your fee must be paid in full before the start of your course. You may need to sit more than one exam paper, and these may be on different days. IGCSEs can be taken at test centres world-wide.

Where do I sit my exams?

The IGCSE exams must be taken in a local college or examination centre near you. Please contact your local college to ask for a private or external candidate exam placement.

How do I find an examination centre?

You should call a local school/college to find out if you can be accepted as an external candidate. If you have any trouble finding an exam centre to register you as an external candidate, please see our examination centre webpage for guaranteed exam placements and links to the exam board websites. Please contact the exam centre for details on exam dates and fees.

How much do exams cost?

Exams are becoming increasingly expensive and unfortunately we have no control over what an exam centre charges you. The exam fee is not included in the price that you pay to eDistance Learning and we strongly advise that you do some shopping around. The cost of any exam consists of two parts; the exam board fee, which is fixed and is published on the relevant AQA or Edexcel website and the administration charge, which can be whatever the exam centre thinks is appropriate. Therefore the cost of an exam can vary from about £50 in a centre which feels it is offering a community service to £150 in a Private Tutorial College in central London.

How does distance learning work?

To ensure studying is flexible and convenient, most of our courses are divided into sections. You work through each section at your own pace and time. Once completed, send the test paper back to your personal tutor for marking. You will then move onto the next section once successfully completing the previous section. The support period is dependent on the type of course you choose; our minimum support period is one year.

When can I start the course?

The answer is simple, when YOU want; you can start the course at any time we do not have any set enrolment dates. Most of our courses don’t require any previous experience or qualifications. All you need is a desire and motivation to succeed. You can even start right now - call and speak to one of our Professional Course Advisors.

How long do the courses take?

This is dependent upon your choice of course and how fast you want to learn. A full breakdown of the course is available in your course literature. We do provide estimated number of study hours; ask our course advisors for details.

I want to buy a course that is not on the course list. What do I do?

Our website has an excellent list of the most popular courses on the market. However, we do have access to a more in-depth portfolio should you not find the course you are looking for. You can call our course advisors and discuss the course you are interested in.

Do the courses have tutorial support?

Yes, You will be allocated an experienced tutor who will guide you through the course, mark your assignments and generally help you with any problems you may have. Your tutors can be contacted via email and post. Please note that some of the courses do not have tutor support. Please check the course literature for details

Is the course work done online or sent via the internet?

Most of our courses are available in both Online & Paper formats. You can choose the way your want to study and submit your course work

Is there a time limit or any deadlines?

We do like you to complete the course within the tutor support period but we can extend this for a small charge (currently £65). If you follow the recommended study hours, this will give you a good guide to complete the course withim the specified time period.

Will I have to sit an examination?

Most of our paper based courses do not require you to sit examinations, only continual assessments. Where there are examinations required, you will receive all the information you need to make your own exam arrangements. Please note exam fees are not included in your course fee, unless otherwise stated.

How quickly will I receive my course material?

Once your payment has been received and cleared your enrolment should be processed within two days and your course materials delivered within 5 days, for customers who choose to pay in instalments this can take longer as we need a signed agreement back from you before we send the course materials.

I wish to cancel my course. How do I do this?

If you have decided that this is not the right type of course for you you may cancel your course, in writing, within the first seven days of having received it. You then need to return your materials to the address printed on the course pack. This is at your own expense and we would advise that you return the materials by a traceable service, as this is your responsibility until we receive the materials. Once we have received the materials, in good condition, we will organise a refund cheque to be sent to you. Please note that an admin fee will apply. If you required your materials to be delivered abroad, the additional postage charge will not be refunded.

Do I have to buy any other materials?

Our comprehensive course materials are designed to be self-contained with all the relevant information you require to complete the course and gain the relevant certification. However some of our students undertake additional reading via relevant textbooks/study guides and/or the Internet to add value to their studies.

I’m not sure of what course I should take? Can you help?

Yes we can, it is important that you pursue a course which you will enjoy. Although we cannot make this decision for you, we employ a team of dedicated Professional Course Advisors, who will guide you towards making the right choice. Whether you want specific information, or just a chat about what’s available, contact us now.
