    I'm planning on doing an extra GCSE (Edexcel). It's in May and I really need to apply soon but I don't know how!! Please help! Thank you!!

    You have to find an exam centre willing to accept you and pay them. The cheapest and simplest option is likely to be your current school. It's not possible to make entries until the Autumn and the entry deadline is in February. What are you hoping to take?

    Yes I am doing it at my school, I'm hoping to do chinese.
    I'm a bit confused by your saying that you will be taking it at your school but asking here what you need to do. Talk to the head of languages or exams officer in September and they will either say it can be sorted there or tell you they can't help and you'll have to find somewhere to accept you as a private candidate but the first step is definitely to talk to your school.
