What it means to study with Pembrokeshire College Online
Pembrokeshire College Online offer a range of live online IGCSE and A-level courses.
These courses follow the awarding body specifications to offer a complete study programme with teacher set and marked homework assignments throughout, which include feedback and support via the online learning platform.
Each subject includes timetabled live online lessons at a set time each week. Learners are expected to either attend these lessons live or watch the available recordings in a timely manner and submit any homework set in each lesson.
Learners are expected to set their own study timetable to complete homework and prepare for upcoming lessons. Teachers will not chase learners to submit work. To receive the best support
If work is submitted that is not 100% the learner’s, this could be considered plagiarised.
Pembrokeshire College Online is able to refuse to use that work when predicting grades or calculating assessed grades.
It is in the learner’s best interest to submit their own work. By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions the learner agrees to submit their own work unless agreed otherwise with the Pembrokeshire College Online Team.
Breach of this term may result in further action taken with the Pembrokeshire College Quality Team.
Pembrokeshire College Online learners can enrol at any age. If the learner is under 18 they must notify the Admin Team of a parent/guardian/teacher who can act as a mentor for the duration of their studies.
Mentors receive a separate login to the online learning platform where they can view the learner’s progress and contact teachers directly (online). Mentors will also receive the notifications sent via the platform and copied in on administration emails from the Admin Team.
Mentors will not have access to the course itself.
Mentors are expected to support the learner with timetabling their studies, progress and exam booking and administration.
Included in the IGCSE and A-level courses are textbooks, which are provided to the learner as part of the enrolment procedure. If the learner is outside of the UK, we will arrange and pay for the shipment of these books, however some countries add an additional import tax, which is not covered by the course fee and is the recipient’s responsibility to pay.
With some courses there may be additional resources or books suggested that are not included within the course fee.
Learners are expected to find an exam centre of their choosing, book and pay for their own exams. We strongly recommend finding a centre as close to home as possible.
If the course includes a Non-Exam Assessment, Pembrokeshire College will enter the learner with the examination board, however, you have the option to complete your written exams at a centre of your choosing under the Transferred Candidate Option. The Transfer Entry fee is not included in your course fee
A-level learners only. Pembrokeshire College Online can support learners with subject references and predicted grades for standard January applications. Should the student require additional UCAS support, including for medical, veterinary, dentistry, or Oxbridge applications, the learner will be required to pay for the additional Pembrokeshire College UCAS Team support.
For all UCAS requests the learner must complete at least 75% of their homework by the UCAS application deadline and the teacher(s) must be confident the work is the learner’s own submissions.
Pembrokeshire College Online reserve the right to not provide a subject reference if we are not confident with the learner’s work.
Predicted Grades for IGCSE learners
IGCSE learners only. Predicted grades for college applications are not included in the IGCSE course fee. Tutors rely on the learner’s work to see their potential grade in exams. Depending on when the learner starts and when the prediction is requested, it is not always possible to do this based on the learner’s work.
If a learner has submitted more than 50% of their tutor marked assignments by the predicted grade request date, we can provide a percentage and overview of the learner’s work to date. This will not be a predicted grade, but should give indication of the learner’s work to date.
Alternatively, the learner can request to complete a set of mock exam papers, which will be an additional cost to the course fee. You must give us 4 weeks’ notice to provide papers and the tutor to mark them.
LearnOnline always recommend exam papers are sat in as close to exam conditions as possible, if the learners use textbooks, mark schemes or the internet to help answer the questions the grade will not be accurate, LearnOnline cannot take responsibility for a different grade when exams are sat.
Pembrokeshire College Online and BioGrad work in partnership on a referral agreement. When you enrol to the practical endorsement, your details are passed onto BioGrad to secure a booking. Once the referral takes place the agreement is between the learner and BioGrad, dates and bookings arranged directly with BioGrad.

The payment plan will ask for the remaining balance to be spread across 5 equal payments, which are to be paid via Direct Debit on the 1st of each month following on from the month the deposit was made.
