NEC is an award-winning online distance learning college that has been transforming the lives of young people and adults for over 50 years. We’ve seen many times how someone's life can be transformed by taking the right course at the right time.

Enrol with confidence that you can succeed

When you are choosing who to study with to achieve important GCSE or A level qualifications, there are two key questions to ask:

  • What support can you offer for registering to sit exams?
  • What is your pass rate?

As well as providing high quality online courses for GCSE and A levels, NEC is in a unique position as an approved exam centre and we can offer a seamless, stress free exam booking service for our students. And unlike other providers we can mark non-examined assessments.

This summer our GCSE pass rate was 92.4% and our A level pass rate was 86.4%. The stand-out performers were GCSE English Language and English Literature where NEC students achieved a 100% pass rate. This is also true of A level subjects like Business, English Literature, French, Spanish and History.

Our students include adults and younger learners from all walks of life. Their achievements are incredible, a clear endorsement of a their hard work and determination. We are so confident that our students will succeed in their exams that we provide a unique exam pass guarantee.
