How should I do my UCAS application as a private candidate who is retaking their A-levels? Last year I applied through my school using the buzzword, should I do that again? What is the benefit to doing that as opposed to simply having teachers from my old school as reference (and how many teachers do I need for my reference, since I'm retaking 2 subjects?).
They're not letting me sit exams there again, even as a private candidate, they've never allowed this and it's not part of their policy. But how much effort will it be on their part to let me sit my resits there and are they being reasonable?
