    Hiya there , I want to take achieve A levels in Chemistry and Biology and am a private candidate aged 19. I know that due to the A level reforms, that both chem/bio are linear examinations. However this does not apply in Wales. Hence I was wondering If I were to take the WJEC board in England , would I sit linear examinations still. Or could I just simply apply to take the exam at a test center in Wales.

    WJEC now have different exams that they set in England under the Eduqas name that conform to reformed linear standards. Centres in England cannot enter candidates for the specification offered in Wales.

    If you are not normally resident in Wales I'm not sure how easily you would be able to enter for WJEC exams as a private candidate. Have you found a centre to take you ? I'm not sure what requirements the WJEC specifications have for practical assessments that would also have to be completed at a centre in Wales. Check the specification for details.
