OK, so I self-studied maths and further maths last year, sitting the exams in June. I got an A and a C.I want to apply to study medicine starting next September. That means I need to sit biology and chemistry this year. Of course self-studying lab based subjects is impractical, so I need a college. That shouldn't be a problem, right? I've proved my ability. But I'm 20, and therefore no sixth form colleges can take me, as they don't get funding for over-19s.As a further complication, lots of medicine undergrad courses don't accept further maths at A2 (??!!??!!).I think this leaves me with the single option of studying two humanities this year, which I could probably manage on my own, and then applying for a foundation course for next September. Though even this seems difficult since the curriculum has changed, and all online resources are now pretty useless.Has anyone gone through something like this, or have advice on self-studying humanities?
