    Hi, my school opposed me taking further maths when I asked them and so I've been locked into single maths for a while. I've been self studying further maths with a tutor for some time (im still in year 12 rn) but when the time comes for uni applications would I even be able to get a predicted grade for the further maths considering my school doesn't know or want me to study further maths? (BTW I'm applying as a private candidate for further maths) If the tutor could give me a predicted grade to a referee could the school veto it somehow?
    Thanks in advance for any answers...

    If you apply with your school as your referee then it’s their decision whether to provide a prediction for a privately sat exam. You need to talk to your school and try to convince them.
