Hmm, another option would be to take up the double award for business since I'm doing single award right now. But then I would have Double Applied business and Applied ICT as my Alevels Although I would probably get AAA I doubt Universitys would be impressed >.< Or I could do it the other way around with Double applied ICT and applied business.. Any thoughts?

I did maths in one year, but I guess thats cause I "get it". It was fairly easy for me.

Do sociology... I've just done it in a year (independantly, private candidate), got an A at AS and few marks off A at A2... I literally did 2 weeks revision before exams in Jan and exams in June and that's what I got, no joke! You really don't even need lessons in it! Just get Parsons revision book, that's all I did!

If you're predicted AAA anyway, you'll find it piss easy! Sorted!
Which exam board? I'm assuming you took 3 AS units in January and 3 A2 units in summer?

Hi, ive just started intensive one year A Levels in Psychology and in Business Studies....

Personally, i think depending upon your strengths is your best options. I think Psychology is pretty straight forward, but only because i got a B in my Sociology A Level last year...and saying that with minimum work or attendance in classes.

One thing with the intensive courses is that they are more exam driven...meaning if you dont need to know it they arent goin to waste time teaching like they do in Eng Lit for example.

Do most colleges offer these intensive one year A-levels? I've never really heard of them as I went to a traditional sixth-form. How do they work exactly? All the AS exams in January and all the A2 ones in June?

Well in in the N.I & as far as i know...i think the rest of the UK works different? not too sure tho?

Yea all AS exams are in Jan 10, and A2 in June 10.

Ive only started but i think its going to bee alot easier to do than my 2 year a levels, as i was doin the legacy spec and had more exams and coursework...with the new spec i have a total of 8 exams all year.

contact your local college/higher education establishment?

p.s Because im under 19 on a certain date ment i only had to pay exam fee's....otherwise each a level costs around £480 to £500! Bit steep!
