    Well I got my A Levs, --->BBB (like 3 marks frm an A in geo n pols) and have no university place. Ok so I have decided to do A levels resits, however i do not wish to go to any classes, but rather just pay for the exam fees itself, and just sit the exam. Anyone know of any colleges or anything providing such a service?

    Your school will let you resit at their place, obviously you jsut pay for re-sits.

    Thats the thing they do not accept resit students after the end of the A2.

    I'm in a similar situation to you. In fact almost exactly the same, in that I just want to resit and not take classes, except that I have 4 Bs instead of 3. I went to the careers officer at my college today to ask about this, but she just brushed me off by saying that there'll be a meeting for people reapplying via UCAS on September 7th at my college.

    I'm just wondering if there's any sort of deadline for declining grades before this date? I'm under the impression that if we don't decline them before a certain date, they'll be set in stone.

    Apparently 20th September is the last date u can decline the grade, enabling you to resit.

    The best way to resit would be to persuade whoever is in charge to allow you to sit just the exams at the college.

    Failing that there are a few colleges that accept external candidates, one I used this year was Leyton Sixth Form (http://www.leyton.ac.uk/home.aspx), also private centres such as Exams Together (http://www.examstogether.com) however they are closing down.

    Most importantly is not to miss the deadline, as it is a major hassle to get a discretionary decash, I learned that the hard way.
