    Hi, I come from Belgium so I don't know everything about A Levels..

    I'm taking Physics A level to match the entry requierement for uni as an external candidate (I already have already finished my secondary in Belgium)

    So my question is: Do units 3 and 6 of Physics are courseworks OR practical exams OR both?

    And what is the difference between both?

    Because I am looking for a centre to sit the units as an external candidate but most don't offer practical exams.. I have found some that offer courseworks though.. So is a coursework enough for those units?

    You should read the specification

    units 3 and 6 of Physics are practical exams
    An international student can take the exam only alternative. I think you can only do this if you take the exams outside of UK.

    The British Council helps international students take A level exams where they live:
