When a learner is unable to sit an examination at their centre due to exceptional circumstances - such as a serious medical condition, suspension or exclusions - they can be transferred to another centre to sit examinations.
The transferred candidate process covers the externally-assessed, written components for A level, GCSE, International GCSE, International A Levels and externally-assessed BTEC units only.
