    have you tried looking on the Exam board websites? Edexcel has an email service which you can use to get a list of centres near you (go on the private candidate section on their website). I'm not too sure about AQA but I believe Edexcel also has a list? This might not be true, but best contact the exam boards for exam centres. Hope this helps (I'm in the same situation) xxx

    that's my very last resort...

    seriously my old sixth form is not a place where i want to go back to... you'd probably get the same response if u asked any other girl who just finished a levels this summer

    Yeah It'll be pretty costly since you'll probably fall under the 'very very late entry' So expect something around £95 a mod.

    I've already signed up and had to pay the late entry (£65)..
