    Hello,

    City of Wesminster College in Maida Vale, London offers one year intensive A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology. :yes:

    It is a state FE college which means you wont have to pay private tuition fees unlike MPW, Harris Campbell College, etc.

    Midkent College is in Kent!!!:eek:

    If you are receiving state benefits then youll only have to pay 30 pounds enrollment fee.

    They are still accepting applications so hurry up. Enrollment days are on: 27th and 28th August 2009.

    Here is the application form that you need to download and send: http://www.cwc.ac.uk/assets_cm/files...ormweb0910.pdf

    Good luck. Hope that helps.

    Are you applying for Pharmacy, right?

    CWC (City of Westminster College) teaches Biology using OCR specification and uses Edexcel for Chemistry. I dont know about Psychology.

    I heard Edexcel is 'easier' now coz you get multiple choice questions in the exam!!!

    Hey I just saw this post of yours. What did you end up doing just out of interest? I ask cos I think I might need to do GCE intensive so your journey would be interesting and relevant to hear =)
