    Heya. Been looking to improve my maths skills and C.V by doing a maths A Level in my spare time. However even to just sit all 6 exams seems to be 350 at ICSLearn. Does anyone know of some cheaper ways to sit the exam? Seems ridiculous when all i want is to sit at the back of an exam hall and do the papers.

    Thanks guys

    (ICS normally sells courses but does nothing to help you arrange the exams. Are you sure the £350 isn't just for the course?)

    The exam board fees are between £11 and £16 per unit but most centres add on a fee for their admin, invigilation etc. You need to ring round local centres and see if any of them will accept you. (the Private schools are more likely to accept private candidates but state schools are likely to be cheaper. You don't say which exam board you are thinking of doing but they all have pages for Private candidates on their websites which include advice on finding a centre.
