Also, what about science? Shouldn't you take at least one for GCSE? Coursework will be a big problem unless you can get a teacher to mark them for you, but with no experience of the British education system, it would be pretty difficult. Then there are the oral exams for languages- you'll need someone to do those with you, or you can get an external examiner.

You have to submit your GCSEs, however bad they are. Likewise with A level predictions (in your case, your actual grades probably). You can choose to decline your AS grades.

But I can give only As and A-levels, can't I ? Because I have the base needed gor GCSEs in maths for example, but it's bad that one has got to sit exams in sooooo many subjects. And it would be easier to concentrate on 4-5 subjects for As and A rather than carry 7 for GCSEs

Maybe I could do for As and A-levels maths, further maths, economics, spanish and german (I just love these 2). It's just that my British Council isn't giving me any straight answer. I might have to apply to distance learning...and NEC doesn't offer further maths and languages for A level It's SO annoying...
By the way...is it possible to have maths and further maths without taking any module of mechanics? It's a part of maths I've never studied before..and as it is a part of physics that I absolutely hate (in fact, I dislike physics )I'm not going to be very happy with any modules
Anyone knows any decent distance learning programme which can also offer me a place for the examination itself ? Excepting NEC

http://www.ool.co.uk You could try them?

I think you can choose which maths modules you do so you wont have to do any mechanics.

Why dont you do an A Level in English Language along wiht the others?

Do you know what you are going to do at uni yet?

I think that ool is only for uk ppl, even if they are not in the UK. They require GCSEs for A level...so. I still couldn't fiind on the edexcel site any recommended books for Maths and Economics, as I think these 2 will be the ones that will cost me most work. Any ideas?
As for English...I am planning to have IELTS, dunno if it makes sense to have it at A level too.

So far I know there is no institution in the UK that would accept private candidates. If I take the distance learning from NEC I could give them in UK but they don't offer English (only literature or something like that) and any other modern language than French and no further maths. If my British Council would hurry in answering me

..How come I take Maths A Level as a private candidate, then? Most schools let external students take the exams. Try ringing/writing to a few. They might even mark coursework for you!

Also, I agree with the others about trying to do everything at once. It's hard enough when you do them in the normal time, but trying to fit 4 years work into one...well, you'd have to be pretty damn brilliant. Not that I know you're not, of course:p:

I'm taking my maths at Torquay Boys Grammer School, Devon. I don't see why you couldn't come and take it too, though I suppose I am a student at another local school.

Well, I'm not attending any british school at all, so... I've written to edexcel yet again. I hope they will point me in an other direction rather than the british council, because they're pretty much useless.

Are there no schools in Romania that does the International or European Baccalaureate programmes? They're just as eligible as A levels for university applications.
