    I believe exam officers have to do it normally.

    You don't have to attend lessons but you do have to find an exam centre (=any secondary school or college) willing to accept you as a private candidate. You have to pay to enter and it is very hard to get coursework verified if you have no teacher.

    I think he's asking about unentering. Could have used better phrasing.

    Thanks - should have read that more carefully.

    You cannot do it yourself, you would have to get the exam officer who entered you to withdraw you. For most exam boards the centre will get their money back if it's done before 21 April so it goes down better if the attempt is made before then - after that they get really grumpy at the waste of money.
