    As the title says, I'm looking for any GCSE (or an equivalent qualification) exam board that is 100% exam assessed. I'm being rejected from universities based on my GCSE grades that were taken eight years ago. As I'm studying A2 Chemistry/Biology/Physics, I wondered if there are any GCSE exam boards that don't require coursework/assessed practical exams. I ask this because it would be much easier to sit an additional exam in summer than go through the rigmarole of finding practical assessment centers etc.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It depends on the subject and exam board. All IGCSEs are assessed 100% externally, but these are only available in the private sector, so it will probably be more difficult to find an accomodating centre. Nevertheless, they remain a valid route in to HE.

    Well I did Maths, R.S. (Edexcel) and Spanish (AQA) which were all 100% exam based. French too but the exam board escapes me.

    I did 100% exam-based French, with the writing test replacing coursework. My exam board was AQA, but I think this is the same for all the main bodies.

    RS short course is for me (OCR I think) and Maths (Edexcel) is.

    Coursework has now been removed from all GCSE Mathematics specifications with effect for tw-year courses that started in September 2007.
