Hey I'm currently studying independently, and by that I mean at home
As someone has said above, you can apply as an independent student and get a former teacher to complete your reference and predicted grades.
Hmm in terms of being costly I guess that depends on what support you require and private examination costs.
I'm teaching myself so I don't worry about tuition costs, I take my exams at my old college which charge £20 per exam, and they also have a one off £70 admin fee (sucks I know).
I also had to complete history coursework as part of my A2 in history. My old teachers were unwilling to support me or to mark my cw so I had to go private, they quoted me a price of £300+. So beware of this, thankfully my old vice principal managed to convince my teachers to mark my coursework, so £20 only. But they refused to support me, I can understand that cos I'm no longer a student at the college, but one would think a teacher would try to support someone who wants a bit of help.
(sorry about the rant).
If you have any questions, do ask.
