    Hey I'm Jessica and I'm 20
    I wasn't able to do my GCSEs for personal reasons 😔
    I would like to do it as a private candidate which I already called the OCR. They gave me a list of the school, colleges that may take private candidate but I called them all and none of them do "how weird".
    So now I'm stock
    Pls help

    What subjects do you want to do? Not all are very suitable for private candidates if they include practical exams, controlled assessments or coursework. There are other examiners so you could try any other schools or colleges in your area to see if they take private candidates and which examiner they use. Colleges and independent schools tend to be more open to it than secondary schools. If you don't have maths or English you should be able to find free local courses to complete them but you have left it too late to start them this year.
