    Can anyone recommend a place in London (particular inside or around Greenwich) where I can sit the IGCSE Science Double Award exam papers for £150 or (ideally) less. I need a C or 4 Grade in this field because unless I have an insanely good portfolio that wows the interviewers, I will not be accepted onto the university course of my choosing. It sucks, it really does but other than getting this qualification, or making a good portfolio that allows me to avoid getting onto a foundation course, what else can I do?

    Also, can anyone recommend revision guides, such as books, videos and websites, that I can use to revise for the exam, since the deadline for applying is apparently near the end of February.

    Product and Industrial Design, particularly a BA but some courses require a C Grade in Science.

    The exam board will charge the centre nearly £100 for an entry so you will be incredibly lucky if you can find a centre prepared to charge you only £50 for their admin, invigilation etc.

    If they only require one science you should be able to take an IGCSE in just one (eg just physics, or just chemistry) Cambridge do an IGCSE in combined science which is a bit of each science but just a single IGCSE. Both those options might make it a little cheaper, as you will only pay to take one rather than two.
