    Basically I'm on a gap year going travelling in the Summer, but also topping up grades by doing a couple of resits. I'm looking to do Physics: Forces, Fields and Energy and Maths: Core 4. My old Sixth Form, Harlington Upper, let me do resits in January, however told me on their deadline day that they would not be accepting me for May/June resits with no reason for it or why they didn't let me know sooner:confused:. It's now too late to change my uni applications and I need to do these resits.:eek3:

    I've rung OCR and they accept resit applications all the way up until the exam date, I just need to find somewhere to do them. I've also rung the colleges and Sixth Forms closest to me with no luck (Bedford College, Luton sixth form, Oaklands College, Redbourne Upper)

    The Bedfordshire LEA have no information so this is a call out to anyone who knows anywhere I will be able to sit these as an external candidate. London is accessible for me so anywhere in London is a plus too.

    Try Campbell Harris http://www.campbellharris.co.uk/Content.asp?ID=54 Your only taking a couple of units, but they're not cheap either with it costing £50 per unit, however they do let you take almost any paper, but Practicals are a nightmare trying to find a centre as a external.

    Thanks a lot - I will check them out. £50 is worth it if I get to resit as I didn't apply to a uni where I needed lower grades to be safe. If I don't get in I would have to go through clearing and wouldn't have accommodation sorted etc etc.

    If anyone else knows anywhere please do enlighten me!
