    I want to take it as a private candidate this year so where do I apply and how long do I have as in when is the deadline? I have never done this before so some guidance would be much appreciated.

    With regards to the ISA: last year I got a B and I believe i can carry this result forward so my question is if it's still possible to achieve an A* with a grade B in the ISA? I ask because it would be too much hassle doing the ISA again and I'm at college atm so I'd prefer to just sit the exams. Any advice with this?

    Thank you very much

    You'll need to find a college that will enter private candidates and provide a place for you to sit the exam. Local 'cramming' colleges might be your best bet.

    You'll have to do really brilliantly in the exams to get A*. The ISA is worth 25% of the course . It's possible but tough.

    Good luck!
