I sat A-level Chemistry this year, I enrolled on an online 'course' and they organised the booking. They got in touch in December about booking the exams at a private exam centre, and the deadline for it was at the very beginning of February.

thanks for the quick response, I've tried doing my own research and i also think that the deadline for the june 2022 exam is February 15.
i know it seems absurd to try doing 2 gcse and 3 a level as a private in Just one year, but for once i want to try my best and put my faith in my hands!
do you have any a level/ gcse online course to recommend? I'm studying by myself but I'd prefer if someone else took care of the examination application.

If you don't want the online course material then it will be much cheaper to go straight to the exam centre directly.

I used open study, it was very expensive (£1500) and the study material was pretty awful. The 'lessons' were slide shows with no titles so you had no idea what topic was in what lesson.

The £20 revision guide I purchased + the free online website chemguide were more useful. But there might be better online courses than what I did.

Best of luck with it! Sounds like you are going to be busy.

Go on the exam board website to search for centres that accept private candidates.

thanks!, i was looking online and saw that doing 3 a level and 2 GCSE by myself is a little too hard expetialy in a short amount of time, I'm quite confident in my maths skills so I'm thinking of doing just the 2gcse and the a level maths and next year or if by God grace i can take the other 2 a levels in November doing it later.
honestly i do have money to waste (i work a lot but don't pay bills) but at the same time all the uni i saw need at least AAB one even A*AA so i prefer not half-assing it even though I'm a little sad because i want to go to uni as soon as possible

UK: The entry deadline at the exam board is 21 February for the Summer season but centres will set earlier deadlines so they have time to process everything to meet the exam board deadline. In a normal year exams are only available in the Summer - don't count on there being an Autumn season because of covid. Not many online courses help with finding an exam centre so this is up to you. Look on the relevant exam board websites or try this list:https://www.jcq.org.uk/private-candidates/

Elsewhere: Different rules
