There are two ways to take O level examinations. One to register from your school and appear as a regular student and the other one to sit in the exam as a private candidate.
The registration procedure for a regular candidate is performed by their institutes. So if you are applying as a private candidate you must follow these instructions for your registration process.
Here is a guideline for you to take your O level exams privately.
Selection of subjects and teachers
This is the most important step even before applying for a formal registration. The selection of subjects is essential since your whole future and professional life depends on it. Courses should be selected after discussion with your teachers and academic counsellors but of course prioritizing your own interest. Subject combination must be in accordance with the future prospect of the students. After subject selection one must choose the best private tutors available for those courses. Since getting help and learning from experienced and qualified teachers help you achieve your goal.
The registration can be performed by the student himself or through a coaching centre. Hiring someone experienced to get you through the registration procedure will reduce the chances of error. Since Cambridge charges a huge fine for rectifying errors, it is recommended to get your registration done by someone experienced.

These requests must be made to Cambridge international board prior to your examinations through an email.
