    Hello, I'll assume that you are not born nor had your primary (GCSE) education here in the UK, same as me.

    One word: expensive

    It will be very expensive for you to self-taught A levels especially the sciences, since Chemistry and Biology (and Maths) are 6 module subjects and both the sciences contains 2 modules of practical (as mentioned above) which will require you to do in a lab under supervision. I have seen your previous post, and you're looking to do Chemistry, Biology and Maths for an Engineering / Science degree in a top university (Oxbridge, Imperial, etc.).

    I would suggest you go to a college. I have a feeling that your an international student (which will cost a lot, as well), you should still go to a college and ask there - if you want to get grades that will get you in the RG.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
