Hii,

Last year I did my AS biology with Edexcel SNAB at school, however this year I am a private candidate and continuing with Biology onto A2, however I cannot find any centres that do Edexcel SNAB. So my questions is is it possible to transfer from Edexcel SNAB to regular Edexcel onto A2?

Aren't SNAB and regular Edexcel the same thing anyway?

I emailed Edexcel-Pearson, and they said it is possible but they're not entirely sure.


Pleaseee HELPPP, or gimme some advice on what to do.

Thanksss xoxox
have a fabb day

I've checked the rules (http://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/e...ents-2014-2015) and it says:
Biology
AQA, CCEA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC
• All transfers are acceptable

So you should be OK but you always have to apply for a transfer of credit - see the link for how (it has to be done by your new exams centre). The deadline for applying was 21 October so you'd better find a centre ASAP and try and make a late request.
