    Not sure where you're based, but there is a centre in Bristol called 3A Tutors Ltd that does pretty much everything from what I've seen (including practical exams). You can also choose to enter as a private candidate or get tutoring as well.

    I can't say for sure they do exactly what you need them to do, and it is a little pricey, but if you don't have anywhere else, it's there. (There's also the problem of getting there depending on where you are.)

    Hope this helps

    Thanks! It helps a lot. Bristol is quite far out though, since I'm based in the Northants - I've got a few more hundred schools I can call until I get as far as Bristol Hopefully I'll find something there.


    By the way, would Cambridge International A-levels be a solid alternative, if I fail to find a centre within a 100km radius, that is reasonably priced, since practical's are not required by the Cambridge Int. A-levels.
    No problem Good luck with finding a centre, I know how you feel since I'm based in Cheshire (was lucky enough to find a school 10 minutes from me in the end haha). I'm sure you'll find somewhere a little nearer that'll take you

    Unfortunately I have no idea on that last one, I'm no qualifications expert by a long shot. I just stumbled upon this place looking for centres for my own resit - sorry!

    CIE AS levels do have compulsory practical papers - - it only the A2 which don't. "Tutorsandexams" - based in Coventry do A levels practicals for some boards.

    To be honest, unless you find a local college/school who is both organising the same practicals for their own students, and who really want to be helpful, you are likely to only find places that are profit making - such as tutorial colleges. Greenes in Oxford do practicals but I am pretty sure that are the same sort of price.
