    Applied for uni this year and needing one extra A Level to get into the uni I want to, is there a way to take another A Level now being January and book an exam in a subject and then can revise at home for it? And add it to my grades on my Ucas application.

    Bearing in mind i am on a gap year and have achieved my grades already. Would love to study at home and take a chance at another A Level to achieve at least a B.

    I doubt it. First you need to identify what the A level is you need and whether it can be taken privately. Then you need an exam center and then you can actually book your exam.
