I don't know actually, could you define what both of those mean?

Private candidate would be a student that’s taking an exam in an exam centre but not involved with that exam centre and a internal candidate is someone who is involved like a student at a school

For physics, biology, chemistry gcse it wouldn’t be hard due to the resources it has so I assume a year and a few months to learn to content. Computer science is tricky since it has an NEA so you have to find an examboard that doesn’t do nea so avoid it - I personally didn’t take computer science so Idk how much it would take to self teach it. For Latin, Im not sure but for any language I suggest 2 years because languages are hard to master. Bruh English language is hard to self teach - practising the exam technique is how you self teach and improving section 5 is what you focus on as you can revise vocabulary and etc for this. For maths, I would say a few
Months because it’s more with application than learning the content. Then I would focus your other time with further maths because it will be great recap harder maths questions and new content but I don’t know how long it take but maybe a year.

For a levels it would be hard for physics as it has a practical component that’s assessed and computers science that might have an NEA (not sure). Further maths and maths would be easier to self teach as they have lots of resources - I recommend edexcel because their books are great
