arc exams are committed to providing an excellent service for any learner seeking an examination centre to sit their exams, from the initial enquiry/application all the way through to certification. Be that one GCSE subject alone, or multiple subjects and qualification levels taken over several examination series.

But we also recognise and understand the significance of providing reliable and accessible examination information to support candidates in making informed decisions.   As part of our commitment to the Home Education community and private candidates we have implemented a blog-based approach to disseminate what we believe to be essential, informative examination information.  

We view our blogs as a valuable resource for candidates, particularly those who may have limited knowledge of the differences between exam types, Awarding Organisations (AO) and subject availability. But we also feel they will benefit ‘the many’, shedding light on topics you might not be so familiar with.

We have already curated information from AO websites to provide blogs focusing on AO comparative grade analysis for the most popular subjects at A Level, GCSEs and IGCSEs. We also showcase blogs from guest contributors as well as providing links/commentary on publications/statistics produced from official sources e.g., DfEE, Ofqual and JCQ.  

We invite you to share any of our blogs you think will be of interest to others and, to ensure you’re notified of future blogs, why not follow us via one or more of our social media channels.

And if you have a burning topic you’d like us to consider ‘blogging’ why not let us know by contacting us here
