    As someone who did pretty badly in the EMPAs and is wanting to retake the Chemistry and Biology EMPAs for the 2420 and 2410 specifications respectively how would one go about it? Are there specialised private exam centres for these retakes since EMPAs aren't in the new specification?

    There are exam centres which do the empas however they can be quite expensive (mine costed around £450). Go to the exam board site (whichever exam board exams you are taking) and they would give a list of colleges that accept private candidates.

    Damn that's expensive as hell :O, I definitely thought my part time job could cover all my retakes but with these EMPAs I'm not so sure :/
