Roughly 6 months before your chosen exam date, you should book your place at an exam centre to take the AQA GCSE Psychology (specification 8182) exams.

Your exam centre could be a school or college that's also submitting its own students for the exam, or it could be a private exam centre. Our partner centre, Tutors & Exams, has five exam venues across England and offers various discounts to ICS Learn students. 

Edexcel publish a list of exam centres that accept private candidates. This won’t cover every available centre, so if there’s nothing shown in your area, we recommend contacting local schools and colleges directly.

Your exam fees aren’t included in the course cost as they’re paid directly to the exam centre. They’ll vary depending on which centre you choose.

Student Progress reports - also known as Parental Reports - are monthly reports we create (per subject) for both students and parents who want to remain in the know with any of the following throughout their course: 

  • Access History: tells you how many days within the month the student has logged in and how many days they've viewed the course. 
  • Submitted Assessments/MOC Exams: documents what assignments have been submitted, as well as when it was submitted, how many times the assignment has been attempted, and what grade they received. 
  • Help Requests: this will show the correspondence between the student and the tutor, any questions that have been asked and what the tutor's response was. 
  • Course News Forum: this is where students and parents can find Tutor Comments and updates on things such as Live Webinar sessions, or exam booking info.

The fee for this monthly report is a one-off price, no matter how many courses a student is enrolled in, and the fee can be integrated into your flexible payment plan. Keep in mind, however, that this fee is entirely separate from the multibuy discount. 

If you’d like to pay in full, you can enrol online using the ‘Add to Basket’ button at the top of the page.

If you’d like to set up an interest-free* payment plan, get in touch with our GCSE Advisors on 0800 015 3326.

If you have any disabilities which you think might affect your studies or assessments, please tell your Course Advisor before you enrol so we can advise you on whether reasonable adjustments can be made to accommodate your needs.
