The Department for Education (DfE) exam support service will help schools and colleges to book sites and invigilators where required. Schools and colleges will also be able to claim funding through the service for essential additional costs associated with running exams in the autumn, including exam fees charged by awarding organisations, alternative sites, and invigilation.

We (www.gov.uk) expect schools and colleges to pay fees for all students who were due to sit exams in the summer, rather than passing the cost on to students or their families.

‘Schools and colleges’ in this guidance refers to:

  • state-funded schools
  • further education, sixth-form and tertiary colleges
  • independent training providers
  • adult and community learning providers
  • independent schools
  • private exam centres
