    Hi,

    I have applied for the University Lancaster and it is likely that I will meet the grade requirements. However, I have been foolish in not resitting my GCSE English which will is likely going to prevent me from going to Lanc.

    I am unsure about if I've left it too late now, but I want to do my GCSE English. If anyone has any informative information that can help the process, e.g. private candidate information.

    The exam that I want to go with is AQA. I have been on the website but a bit sceptical about the entry deadlines e.c.t.

    If anyone can help, I'd be extremely appreciative because I really have left it last minute. I'm unsure If it would even be possible for for me to do the exams and get my results in time for university.

    Thanks in advance

    Doesn't AQA require coursework? I'm sure their first stage entry deadline was like a month ago?

    If your set on AQA; google their private candidate centre's, and phone all the ones near to you in the morning. I think you'd be hard pushed to find a school, or somewhere cheap, to enter you with coursework at this late time.

    If you don't find a place, try switching to IGCSE with CIE or Edexcel - as they don't have coursework, contact a private exam centre - you'll have to pay a late entry fee by now and be quick because i'm sure they wont take anyone after mid April.
