    Hi guys,

    I am a student studying at sixth form and i need some advice on doing my a levels privately. The a level's that my current sixth form offer are poor and do not appeal to me.

    I am thinking of doing my a level's privately and need some advice on where abouts i can do it and how much will it cost. The a level's i am considering doing privately is Computing as it help for me to achieve a degree in Computer Science.

    It would be much appreciated if you guy's could leave some sites below or numbers which i could get in contact with.

    Thanks for taking some time out to read this thread

    You have to ask your college if they will be willing to take you on as a private candidate for the subject that they don't have. So, best thing to do is to talk to your college's Exam Officer. If not then go ask the college that offers computing? or contact exam board and they might give you the details of where in your area that you can take the exam. The trouble is for computing, I have the feeling that it will involve courseworks (just like ICT does) so you will have to seek someone to mark your work or the exam board provide this service, I don't know.

    So best thing to do is to talk to your exam officer and if she does not allow you to do it then contact the exam board to see what they say.

    I hope this help, and sorry if I am not helpful.
