Can I pass A-levels not being in an English school anymore ? (I'm in a French high school right now, passing the baccalaureate but I also really want to pass the A-levels to fixate the end of my English studies (I was in an English highschool before but I left before the GCSE exams so I don't have any "closure" and i would like to have that.

Yes, but with a significant caveat - you need to be physically in the UK to take each exam.

Essentially, you just need to pick a school or college which accepts private candidates - see https://www.aqa.org.uk/student-and-p...ool-or-college for example.

The issue - as stated at https://www.aqa.org.uk/student-and-p...ate-candidates - is that "Exams are not available for private candidates to sit outside the UK." So you would have to travel to the UK to sit each paper, it seems. Is that feasible for you?

For the other A level exam boards in the UK see:
https://www.ocr.org.uk/students/private-candidates/
https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...andidates.html
https://ccea.org.uk/downloads/docs/c...Booklet_10.pdf
https://www.wjec.co.uk/home/student-...te-candidates/

Do you know what exam board you'll be using? It's worth reading through their "private candidate" pages (see above) for all the details.

(Note that CCEA refer to a private candidate as an external candidate, but it's the same thing.)

A-levels test via a completely different approach to le bac and you would likely have to study for them as well. Not worth it in my opinion.
(If you want to sit them, it would be easier to sit International A-levels since you can take them in France.)

will not taking AS exams as a prospective private A level candidate lower your chances of getting admission into a university?Also how does one go about carrying out practical activities and assesments for subjects that require them.
