Pearson Edexcel examinations are administered under a variety of centre designations by International Tuition Services Ltd (ITS).

NOTES FOR CANDIDATES ENTERING EXAMINATIONS

ITS will not be responsible for any incorrect entries.

I. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
No minimum entry requirement is needed. There is no age limit set for enrolments in examinations toward qualifications being offered. Anyone who wishes to enroll in exams through ITS for the purposes of obtaining a Pearson Edexcel qualification may do so.

II. SUBMISSION OF ENTRIES
All Candidates
Examination enrolments forms can be submitted to ITS by the online form. A copy of a valid Hong Kong Identity Card or passport must be uploaded and the same document used to enter the examination.

III. EXAMINATION FEES
All Candidates
At the time of processing an application to sit an examination, an invoice for the examination fees will be issued. The invoice will be sent by email to a candidate. All fees must be paid on or before the date printed on the invoice. Candidates should keep their original receipts as evidence of their having paid the invoice. If payment of an examination fee is not made by the date specified on the invoice, late payments will only be accepted at the discretion of ITS and a supplementary fee in addition to the examination fee may be levied.

Examination fees are not transferrable, either from one examination session to another or from one candidate to another. Candidates are advised that once they have paid their examination fees, no refunds will be issued either for a candidate who withdraws their entry, or who is absent from the examination, or whose entry is cancelled.

Fees must be paid in the currency stated on the invoice. Cash is accepted but only in the currency stated on the invoice. Coins in foreign currency will not be accepted. If payment is made by electronic funds transfer, the transfer receipt should be emailed to ITS as confirmation of payment having been made. Details for the procedures about this are clearly detailed on all ITS invoices. Candidates need to note that foreign currency cheques drawn on non-Hong Kong banks will attract an additional charge. If candidates pay an invoice by cheque, they should write their invoice number on the back of their cheque.

IV. SYLLABUSES
Please read all relevant syllabuses CAREFULLY before completing an examination enrolment form.

V. ENTRIES
(i) Dual Entries
Candidates are highly discouraged from enrolling in different exam centers (and making dual entries toward qualifications) within an exam session. ITS will not accommodate exam clashes unless both subjects have been enrolled through ITS.

(ii) Late Entries
Any application for late entry must be submitted to ITS. If a late entry application is accepted, an additional fee in addition to the listed fees will be levied for each entry.

(iii) Addition/Change of Subject
Changes to an examination entry cannot be made once examination fees have been paid. If a candidate wishes to add or make change(s) to an examination entry, a written application must be submitted to ITS. If the application is accepted, a supplementary fee in addition to the invoiced fees may be levied for each change or addition.

VI. PERSONAL DATA
Personal data of candidates is used for the delivery of examination services. This data is entry data that has been supplied either by candidates through their schools, or by candidates who are responsible for their own entries. The provision of any requested personal data is voluntary. However, if a candidate fails to provide all the required examination entry data or if any of the data supplied are inaccurate or incomplete, ITS might be unable to accept or process their entry.

Personal data submitted may also be used for:

(a) assisting tertiary institutions and other educational institutions in their processes for admissions purposes
(b) assisting government/public organizations in granting scholarships or/and financial assistance
(c) certifying candidates' examination results in response to legitimate requests
(d) conducting educational research and analysis in an anonymous format in which the identities of candidates are not released

ITS will process all candidates’ personal data in compliance with the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance. Access to all personal data will be made available, on payment of a fee, to anyone who can establish their right to be informed of such data as is retained by the ITS. Please also note that candidates' personal data/correspondence/other information received by ITS may be referred to the Examination Board concerned. Candidates should approach the Examination Board directly for that Board’s personal data/information handling policies, if necessary.

VII. STATEMENT OF ENTRY AND TIMETABLE
Candidates are reminded to carefully check their relevant statements of entry before submitting payment to ensure that the correct enrolments have been made. Once received, examination timetables must also be checked to ensure the correct subjects have been entered and prohibited combinations of subjects have been addressed. Candidates may clarify arrangements regarding any potential timetable clashes with the Exams Officer at ITS.

As exams are held at multiple locations in each exam session as indicated on the individual exam timetable, failure to arrive on time at the designated venue for each exam may result in non-admission.

VIII. UNFORESEEABLE CIRCUMSTANCES
Please note that neither the Examination Board nor ITS will be responsible for any non-performance of duties where such non-performance has been caused by an act of God, labour strike, natural disasters, government action or intervention, riot, staff negligence or any cause not reasonably foreseeable and beyond the reasonable control of the Examination Board or ITS.
