    Sorry for the dodgy title, wasn't sure how to word it. Basically I just completed my.maths gcse this year and am doing the AS in year 11, I've started the course and it seems fairly easy so I asked my teacher if I could do the a level at the end of the year. He said that if I did all 6 papers in December and got an a* he'd enter me let me complete the a level at the end of the year. However I'm concerned it may be too late then so my question is can you enter someone to do an exam in December or do you need to tell the exam board you will requiring an exam paper before that. Thanks and sorry for the essay.

    The cut off point is about January/February, and then after that you can still be entered but the exam board charges more for entry, so don't worry, you have enough time

    That's plenty of time. Why assume your teacher doesn't know his job? By the end of the year, he means May/June. There are no January exams.

    Thank you so much. He was a little confused too which is why I was asking, but I'm glad to see it's okay.
