    Hi. I am studying A level physics by distance learning.I've discovered that with my course I have to organise Externally Marked Practical Assessments - EMPA myself- the exam centres I have talked to won`t organise them for me- aaargh. Does anyone know a college/ centre in Sussex or even London where I can go to do these practicals for unit 3 & 6? Your help is really appreciated !!!!

    You seem to be studying a specification that has been discontinued - the spec you were talking about had its last exams (re-sits only) last Summer. You now need to do 12 assessed practicals as non-examination assessment to get the practical endorsement.

    Thanks a lot. I think I`ve been given the study pack for the old spec ...! I`ll need to contact my physics tutor.
