Heyo, I wanted to check whether anyone knows:
Do schools get any profit from the fee we pay for our exams, especially Edexcel IGCSE?

There's a difference between charging you more than they have to pay Edexcel and making a profit. They also have to employ an exams officer, invigilators, have rooms available, etc etc. If you're a private candidate they will factor this in to how much they charge you.

Exams are expensive. In UK state schools students aren't charged and the medium sized school I work at (c950 students) spends about £150,000 on exam fees every year.

🤮 Good lord... fr?

That is a disgusting amount of money for what is technically a piece of paper for the student. (I know it's not, its everything else too) Its around £160 per student
