Yes, you will need to take the standard A-Level examinations and internal assessments in order to fully complete this course, but arranging them is simple. The examinations run on specific dates which can be obtained by visiting the AQA website. You will be required to book these examinations yourself, and Open Study College can provide you with a list of examination centres for you. The costs of the examination can vary depending on which examination centre you choose.
Students will also need to find a centre for the practical elements of this course. We have an arrangement with a centre in Birmingham which will allow students to take practical and theoretical exams, but you may wish to find a local centre of your own choice. Students will need to contact their chosen centre directly to arrange these assessments. For further information on the Birmingham centre, please click here
For this particular course, examination centres charge a substantial fee to take your exams and practical assessments, which is why we thoroughly recommend you conduct further research into this before enrolling.
You may also wish to purchase textbooks to supplement the course, but this is entirely optional.
You are still able to study this A-Level course but must take the examinations within the UK as this is the only guaranteed way to access examination centres.
