Cambridge International Examinations is now offering a qualification in Thinking Skills for AS and A levels which is part of the Cambridge Advanced Qualificatons. Assessments are primarily designed for students who are studying at schools registered with Cambridge. It is recognised, however, that there are students who may not attend Cambridge schools but who may wish to enter for assessments; such individuals are referred to as private candidates. What this means is that if your local school is not offering this qualification, students can apply to do the exam as a private candidate. Private candidates need to approach a Cambridge based registered school and ask them to provide the exam. You can find a list of Cambridge registered schools in your country here. Entry for assessments can only be made through a registered Cambridge school. It is the responsibility of private candidates to make their own arrangements with a school. The school name will not appear on certificates issued to private candidates. You can see the contents of the syllabus here: SYLLABUS OVERVIEW or the summary offered in this page below.
