    I finish 6th form in June and dont want to go to Uni just yet, so i want to do more A levels. I want to self teach them if possible becuase i like a challenge
    The a levels im hoping to study are:
    Physcology/sociology
    Geography
    Spanish

    Do you think it is possible to self teach these subjects if i can somehow get hold of the course specifications? and get a decent grade ? ( C and above)

    Ive done as law and found it pretty easy as it was just memorizing the work and the cases/ people, are there any other courses which can be easily passed just by memorizing the information?

    Advice appreeciated

    I pretty much self taught myself a degree so I guess it should be possible

    I am doing it now.
    One major tip - get your passport/drivers license sorted. I wanted to take the AS exams in January but I can't as I haven't sent my passport off (and thus have no proof of identification).

    So now I have 12 exams from like may 16th-June21st.

    Why do you want to do more A levels? And what do you hope to gain from it?

    I'd start by teaching yourself how to spell psychology.

    I was going to say this.. you wouldn't believe how many people in my psychology degree class still can't spell it!

    But anyway- it's certainly possible, but why would you want to do that? Why not do something else with your year out that doesn't involve exams and essays?

    Providing you get good grades this year, there's no need to get more A Levels!

    I havent got much else planned for next year apart from a bit of travelling and getting a job, so i'd rather do something productive for the rest of the year rather than sit on my arse all day and be bored, and i want to learn spanish anyway, even if i didnt intend on getting a qualification from it :P

    DubarryGroom - Thank you
