    I'm working with a tutor for an A Level, and am sitting my exam at another school that solely functions as an exam centre for me.

    I am unsure how to fill this in on UCAS. Though I know how to add another exam centre, it only gives the options of full time, part time, or sandwich study. I am not sure what to choose, as any might suggest I am studying at that school, when I am not.

    All help appreciated!

    I suspect part-time is what you want.

    Add it for the month(s) of the exam(s) only, as "part time". You can then ask your referee to include a sentence in your reference about it if you wish.

    Thank you both. I called UCAS and they said select 'Sandwich' and include only the months of exams. I'm doing all 4 next year though so can't be sure how long my exam period is or when it will be. Last year A2 exams for my board were in May!

    In all my years of doing this, "sandwich" has never been the right answer. I know some things do change over time but I would be very surprised if this was one of them.

    You can check the future provisional exam dates on the exam board website.

    Oh and I didn't even notice the recommendation was "sandwich" - yeah that makes no sense...

    But as I said it won't really matter much (I'd go with part-time though).

    Wait, are you guys saying I should put Part Time, even though the UCAS lady on the phone said sandwich? Just want clarification because I am a bit confused what to do! PQ, when you said that 'theyre at it again' did you mean 'ah I see they're helping people out again' or did you mean 'ah, they're saying the wrong stuff again...'

    The latter. Ucas staff are notorious for getting things wrong.
