    Exam centres are normally just places to take exams.
    You only need one reference and imo that would be the school.
    You could get your referee to mention the other A level although he would have to phrase it carefully about any predicted grade as it wouldnt be them suggesting it.

    I did that. I took an extra AS level alongside my A2s for more UCAS points as I got a U in a different AS level when I took them first time. I paid and sat this exam in a private school whereas my A2s were done in my regular sixth form.

    You tell your school what you're doing and they'll predict you a grade. They'll base it off your other subjects. As they aren't teaching you it they will predict something safe like a B. That's what mine did anyway (I got an A so yay).

    Hey, so I'm a currently in Year 12 and I'm in the same situation. I'm doing three A-Levels in school which are Literature, Psychology and History. I want to take Biology as an extra subject privately. How have you self studied yourself to get an A if you don't mind answering? I want to take Biology as I want to pursue a career in Diagnostic Radiography. Any replies would be useful thanks.
