    Hiho, Im Pawel and Im from Poland.

    I wanna know that it's possible to try pass A Levels (damn, I don't know what word should I use, pass sound bad) without going to school in UK?

    It's possible to learn at home (I live and learn in Poland) and pass the exams somewhere in the UK school, like.. mhh 'free student' or sth?

    Sorry for mistakes,

    Oh, It can be hard? Can u recommend me some books to A Level (AS and A2) Math, Physics, Further Math?

    To get into top university (I mean Oxbridge) should I pass 3 A Levels right? I'm thinking about Engineering so Math, Physics and Further Math will be enough?

    You can gain entry to UK universities with Polish qualifications if they are of equivalent standard to A level. UK universities have experience of students from around the world. Check the suitability of your qualifications with the admissions offices at your universities and colleges before applying. They will decide whether or not your qualifications meet or could meet their entry requirements for the course(s).

    If you want to take A levels then both Edexcel and CIE offer them internationally. The British Council can help you to take these A level exams in many cities in Poland, see here

    http://www.britishcouncil.org/poland...onal-exams.htm

    This may change if the planned cuts in government spending affect the work of the B.C.

    A;lthough many students take CIE A levels, my recommendation would be to choose Edexcel because there tends to be more easily obtained syllabus specific text books etc for a student who is self studying.
    You can learn more about the Maths A level qualifications from Edexcel here:

    http://www.edexcel.com/quals/gce/gce...s/default.aspx

    This range of books is good for Edexcel maths, there is one book for each unit.

    I don't know about physics.

    Ok and what about A Level exam structure?

    Can I just pass Math, Physics and Further Math If University requirements are A*AA? Or I MUST pass more?

    You need to check the entry requirements for the specific courses you want to apply for. You can do this on the various university web sites and follow links to email admissions tutors for more clarification. For many courses Further Maths is not accepted as the 3rd A level.
