    Hello Everyone
    I hope everyone is having a great summer and good luck with August

    My friend gave me the Edexcel engineering book for AS & A2. I looked at the book and the first 3 units are for the AS qualification and don't seem too bad to self study (my school doesn't offer this subject) but as I was looking at the specifications and the subject being 'Applied', it seems that there is a practical part of the syllabus (hence the name I guess). My question is, who type of practicals are those? Are they able to be done on my own? Is it still possible to take this exam even if the school doesn't offer it knowing that there is a practical part to it?

    Thanks in advance

    I suggest you look at the specification
    http://www.edexcel.com/migrationdocu...rd_issue_5.pdf

    It includes 4 out of 6 units that must be assessed internally in your centre. Edexcel don't offer a marking service for coursework and I've never heard of a centre that would do it for this subject for for private candidates. I think it would be impossible to complete this qualification in a school that doesn't offer it unless your school can organise a relationship with another local school that does.
