    Why were you unable to take it at school? If it was for academic reasons, there's no way you'd cope without a teacher. It's expensive as well; you have to pay for every exam paper and every practical assessment yourself, and the cost for the time and effort of the centre providing the exams to let you take them there.

    stay strong, check if your school can enter you for the exam only and then you can self-teach yourself chemistry or go to tuition or check if any of your friends take chem and borrow their notes. Bear in mind thats its a difficult A Level and it needs lots of commitment and continuous hard work! any time lost will have dire consequences so the work load truly is large! good luck!

    The school will not enter him; they are not going to risk a bad grade in their figures. He doesn't do the subject and the school has a repututation to uphold; a U grade in AS chemistry is not something they are going to risk from someone who they haven't taught anything about the subject.

    i initially took it for AS but stupidly dropped out of it quickly and i cant take it again. most universities with medicine/dentistry courses require chemistry a level and i dont know any other alternatives
