Cambridge Exams for homeschoolers

Source: www.hef.org.nz

Are you interested in Cambridge exams but don’t know where to start?

There are several things you can do.

Firstly, request a copy of the Private Candidate Handbook which is available from the Association for Cambridge Schools in NZ (acsnz@ags.school.nz). This outlines the courses which our students can take as well as the relevant costs etc.

Also, if anyone is interested, Judith Tizzard and I have had a DVD produced with the help of a lovely homeschooling family which covers the basics of Cambridge – specifically from a homeschooling perspective.  Please contact info@cambridgeexamsolutions.co.nz if you are interested and we’ll let you know the details on how to obtain a copy.

There is also an email discussion group set up especially for those homeschooling families sitting the Cambridge exams (Judith and I are the owners/moderators of this email loop):

Alternatively, send an email with “subscribe” in the subject header to:

NZHomeEdCambridge@yahoogroups.com

Update: Two years ago there were only a handful of homeschoolers sitting Cambridge exams. This year there will be over 200. It is wonderful that we now have this option available to us. The new streamlined system for Private Candidates has been so successful that it is going to be used as an example for how similar systems can be introduced in other countries around the world.

Once again, Kiwi home educators led the way!

Kind regards,

Erena & Judith
