I am gonna do A levels privately through British Council in the UAE. I contacted them to ask which subjects they offered but they told me that the details of the subjects available for May/June 2015 through British Council will be available only by end of Dec 2014. I checked out the subjects on their registration forms that they had put out for the October/November 2014 session in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi to get some idea. I asked the guy what I can do about the coursework and practicals required for Physics 9702, Computing 9691 and Literature in English 9695 and he told me "Most of the papers will have an alternative to practical/coursework. You may choose those options." I am confused by this statement. I'll lay it out for you below as I understood it:

I want to do Literature in English 9695 and these are the components offered at British Council:
AS:
22: Composition
92: Poetry, Prose, Drama
A2:
32: Poetry and Prose
42: Drama
52: Shakespeare & Other Pre -20th Century Texts
62: 20th Century Texts
72: Comment & Appreciation
66: June ’14 AS Mark C/F
67: Nov’13 AS Mark C/F
88: Paper 8 Mark C/F
Since coursework is optional, does this mean I can do the other components required and get it done?

Now, Physics 9702:
A2:
42: A2 Structured Questions
52: Planning, Analysis and Evaluation
66: June’14 AS Mark C/F
67: Nov’13 AS Mark C/F
(Information for AS isn't available for Oct/Nov, only A2 and whole A level :confused:)
What does this mean? Is there a certain alternative paper I can do for Physics which will satisfy the requirement for a practical exam or what?

As for Computing 9691:
AS:
12: Written Paper
22: Written Paper
A2:
12: Written Paper
22: Written Paper
32: Written Paper
84: June ‘14 Paper 4 Mark C/F
94: Nov’ 13 Paper 4 Mark C/F
But on the CIE website, it says the A level Computing Syllabus is not available to private candidates. Are there any alternatives? Have any of you taken these subjects privately?
