Private candidates
Cambridge International exams are designed primarily for candidates who follow courses of study at schools and colleges that act as registered centres. It is recognised, however, that there are candidates who may not attend schools or colleges but who may wish to enter for the exams. Such individuals are referred to as private candidates and their status is indicated by entering the letter ‘P’ in the appropriate column on the entry form.
Individuals who have been entered as private candidates are identified separately in summaries of the centre’s results. Statements of results and certificates will be sent to the centre.

Candidate numbering
Centres must allocate a candidate number to each candidate. For each candidate a unique number within the range 1 to 9999 must be used. Candidate numbers need not be consecutive but must be listed in ascending numerical order. All subsequent lists of candidates provided by Cambridge International will be in candidate number order.
