    due to health reasons I have to leave school and i'm getting no support from my school at all because of my low attendance. I'm predicted AAA, will another school let me sit my exams there? Do colleges allow other exam boards? I just need an exam centre to sit my exams at and i feel so hopeless right now. Does anyone know what to do about coursework? I'm only half way through my biology controlled assessments.

    If you look on the website of the exam board you're sitting with, there should be a section for private candidates. This should give you a list of all the centres that will accept you in your area. Ring them all up until you find one that will take you. You will have to pay fees and that will vary depending on the subject. I am sitting AS/A2 psychology and AS/A2 history with AQA, there was a £22 fee per exam, £60 admin fee and then one of my exams had no other students sitting it so I also had a £20 invigilation charge. However the cut of date was Friday so I believe, so you may have high charges to pay. Also the centre I am sitting my written exams was unable to accept me for my coursework, I have a tutor that has to authenticate my work and then send it to a different centre to be submitted so do make sure you ask if you require coursework submission.

    Contact a college quick. Because 6th forms/colleges will have all passed their deadline for doing this. They may squeeze you in late but I wouldn't hold my breath on that. As for course work that sounds a big problem as well. You should expect to take a full extra year I would think.
