    Look on the Edexcel or AQA websites. Chances are if they accept candidates for one of those then they will also accept for the other and OCR.

    just go to any school, the one closest to you. There's not gonna be much difference in price, and as long as you don't go to like a Ofsted unstatisfactory school, they'll post your paper to the exam board - there's not much for the school to balls up or that requires them to be reliable.

    Very few state schools accept private candidates and the prices between centres vary dramatically. You'd also be surprised how easy it is to mess up an entry if the candidate doesn't really understand what they're doing (which is very common) and the centre doesn't normally enter candidates for that specification.

    Based on previous posts on this forum site, I'd probably agree, although I'll just give a few sixth forms a ring and see if they'll let me. I've found a centre near me for £250 per exam but not sure if they're legit or not, also has just 1 review that I could find across most sites (which the company itself may or may not have done it themselves).

    That does sound an outrageous price. £240 for an Level (without practicals) is about right, or £50 or so for a unit in an unreformed A level.
