I think this has been alluded to here before, but has anyone had experience of self-enrolling for A-level exams, or knows what’s involved? I suspect the difficulty is that most courses have coursework, and this needs to be marked / supervised.
And yes, I have tried to look into this.
I’ve been on the sites of the main exam boards AQA, OCR… and they don’t provide any info on self-enrolling. Or my search-fu is not up to it.
I’ve e-mailed them and received no reply.
The next step is phoning them, but even there, there are specific numbers for current students, teachers etc. I feel a little silly phoning one of these numbers, and Dope comes higher as an option
I have recent first hand experience of this. In my case, although I am required to attend occasional assessments, there is no coursework that makes up a percentage of the final exam. (This may depend on the subjects taken).
As far as I am aware, you cannot “self enrol” as such, to take the exam, you need to belong to a recognised school or college. I am sure your local college or community learning centre would be happy to help you, just call and ask for Student Admissions.
If you need more details, let me know … I would have PM’d you, but you don’t have it enabled
