Hi,So basically I am 18 and I want to do my ALevels next year so I am doing ALvel Biology.Chem,and Physics and I am fast tracking my learning to 1 year and also doing self teaching.I checked for exam centres that I could use and the price for all subjects is about£3500 for both the exam and the practical endorsement which I can totally not afford right now.So does anyone know anyway I could do the exam for any cheaper.

Doi you need to pass the practical endorsement?
Could you swap out one subject for something that is just exams (and so much cheaper), like Maths?

I think the practical endoresment is about 20% of your final grade.But if i was to change any subject it would be Physics

The practical component does not affect your grade. You are asked questions about the practicals in the exams so you need to understand them but the actual practicals only affect whether you pass or fail the practical endorsement - you can get an A* and a not classified or an E and a Pass. However, for a lot of university courses, they make passing the practical endorsement a condition of your offer.
