I've been looking for somewhere to take exams as an external candidate for a few days now and can't find any suitable schools who aren't asking stupid money.

Does anyone know any schools or colleges that handle external candidates for a levels in Birmingham or it's surrounding areas.
Thanks

The exam boards usually have lists of all their exam centres on their website, that's probably the best way to find somewhere.

It's probably because it's a private tuition place. I sat my exams at a school and paid a fraction of that.

Did you do it as an external candidate, did you previously attend there, may I ask how much it was?

Yeah, I did six A-level Maths exams as an external candidate. I can't remember exactly how much it cost but it was less than £200.

Not a gap year, but I wasn't in education at the time. The school was in Staffordshire.

I remember you!

You gave me so much help with centres in the past.

For Coventry centres go Bablake.

About £350 to do 12 exams. Pretty good considering.

Tutorsandexams is a complete rip off £90 per paper I was quoted!
