I'm having to resit a year due to lack of attendance at my sixth form, so I've decided to do my exams as a private candidate. Other than my attendance/punctuality I was a relatively good student. The problem is I'm wondering if I can use my old sixth form as a reference despite shortly joining a new college (I left quite quickly).
If anyone has experience at London Brookes College that would be helpful.

Well, there's hundreds of things you could want a reference for, and your post made no mention of university.

You will need to speak to your old sixth form, but it is standard that they will provide a reference in these circumstances. You will need to check if they would mention your lack of attendance - they most likely won't, but they would be entitled to.

Thank you for your help & that was my bad, I rushed the post. I've found out that the centre I'm going to do my exams at do not assess or authenticate coursework for my computer science A -level (2 written exams and 1 practical)themselves, so I will require someone to do this. I was planning on asking my old computer science teacher but it seems he will be very busy as he is now a Head of Year. I will still try and ask him, but if this doesn't work out what could I do about it? If it helps the exam board is OCR.
