    Hello!

    I am currently studying the IB, but, however, nevertheless, nonetheless I want to be examined(additionally) on A-levels.

    I am very confused on how to do it! How do I send coursework (if I have to)? How are the 'modules' assessed?

    Can anyone help me with it?

    Thank you very much!

    Hey,

    I'm studying my A-Levels independently in my free time. Are you at school, and if you are, do they teach A-levels (I don't understand how the IB system works in schools)? If so, ask them to sit your exams as an external student.

    If not, you want to find a school that you can get to and get in contact with them - ask the same. Most schools don't mind doing this, so long as you're not asking much of them (and you're not, if you're just taking the exams there).

    There's a fee for each exam (if you're planning on taking the exams in Summer of this year, it's £40ish per exam, because the deadline was about a week ago. If not, it should only be £20ish for each exam.

    So far as coursework goes, I'm not too sure... My ex-school is allowing me to study on my own and send the coursework to my ex-teacher, who is then sending it to the exam board. You should be okay to do this; ask whichever school you're planning on taking your exams at.

    In terms of how the modules are assessed, it depends on the governing body; AQA, Edexcel, and OCR are the main ones. It depends on what exam board the school you are taking the exams with have chosen; you'll probably have to go along with those so they don't have to invigilate while you take an exam all by yourself! Each exam board is different. Some will take coursework for a subject, where another might not for the same subject.


    Hope I helped, anything I didn't mention?

    Hi there

    I don't understand why you would want to take A levels in addition to your IB study. It seems a bit chaotic to me.

    Nonetheless the exam boards give guidance on this matter

    Edexcel

    OCR

    AQA

    Hello,

    No, my school doesn't teach A-levels, so I am not entirely sure how I could be marked by any of my teachers;
    I am taking A-levels because I can! (haha, it is true, I am sure I can get an A*). I am confident in my Classics but I cannot take 7 IB subjects, so I guess A-levels are the way to go.
    How does the coursework works? Is it a requirement to have a teacher marking it? The websites are confusing/don't give information on the matter.

    I think I will emails the boards...
