Here at the Academic Enrichment Centre we’re acutely aware of the difficulty private candidates can face in securing a centre willing to undertake language exams, particularly for ‘lesser taught’ languages.

Last year we accepted entries for only four languages.  For the forthcoming Summer 2023 examinations, held in May/June, we have increased our language assessment offering to 25 languages, a six-fold increase.  Whether it’s Afrikanns, all the way through to Urdu, we’re here to help you get the grade you deserve. Where speaking tests are required we will conduct those in late March/early April, hosted in centre by tutors with years of assessment experience.

The languages available for assessment, by exam level/type, are detailed below:
