Hi,
I'm taking a gap year and revising all my year 1 +2 content at home to resit two of my exams. I'm not at college neither am I with a tutor.

Would I put myself down as a private candidate on my UCAS application.
Also, how would I get my predictions done? (My old sixth form wont predict me any higher than my CAGs because they have no further evidence)

1. Yes you are a private candidate. Look at applying as an individual.
2. Predicteds is normally by your referee. If you wnat improved ones then you will have to provide evidenbce to the refereee as to why they take precedence. Some exam centres will offer tests if you pay them on which they based predicteds. I think the best way is to use a tutor for that task although it will cost money or your referee if they are willing.
