    Hey..

    Got my AS results;
    History A
    Politics A
    RS C
    General Studies C

    I'm considering going into yr13 and doing an A-level in 1 yr. Thinking about Law. Does anyone have any experience of taking AS/A2 in one year? I'm at 6th form at school, do schools usually allow this or would I have to do it through the NEC? And I'm guessing you don't get a predicted grade...Is that right?

    Thanks.

    It is entirely feasible to do an A-level in one year, whether your school will allow you is something that students on TSR cannot answer. Law is definitely a subject you could - a girl I know somehow managed to teach herself the A-level in nine hours.... Still not sure how that works.

    Thanks for replying. I'll find out at school as soon as I can. If not will have to do it through NEC I guess which would be a bit of a pain.

    I am going through uk-open-learning.com and doing alevels in a year (due to personal reasons), not all schools allow it though, so it depends it you have the determination and commitment to teach yourself.

    I did it on about the same - if you have an interest in the subject, a good memory and analysis skills, it's possible.

    Kirstinx, seeing as you have As in both History and Politics, I wouldn't have thought that taking law and teaching yourself would be very difficult. The skill set required is quite similar. I'd also recommend the OCR board - much easier to work with the modular system than AQA.

    Entirely doable. I'm doing 2 A-levels in a year starting in September - Economics and English Lit (both Edexcel)

    I did an A level in a year, twice, and got an A both times. It's easy, just make sure you work at twice the pace.

    Did you teach yourself or did you do it at a school?
