Never too late! There are people aged 30-50 at my college who are re-taking A-levels and GCSEs.

Can't tell you the price, but a year or so ago two brothers ages around 23-26 retook their A Levels and got offers to Cambridge to study Math.

So it's definitely never too late if you're at 20.

Just a simple question, does anyone know how much it'd cost?

Thanks


It would cost about £2,000 a year per A-level. However, if you self-teach them you can simply phone up an exam board (AQA would be convenient) and book an entry as a private candidate at a local test centre; this costs no more than £25 per exam.
My sis is retaking hers at 21 (going back to college full time) and it's cost her about £400 altho that's partially subsidised

Which A-Levels?
It's never too late to do anything that you might want to do. As long as you have the motivation to succeed then you should go for it- never accept second best when you could achieve so much more for yourself.

OP: you should self-teach and enter privately.
It is not too late to decide to further your education. Neither would I say it is impractical.

I don't know where you live but it often varies by area or on whether you plan to study alone and use an examination centre or use a college/school. Near me there are 'mature students' at college and I don't think all of them pay. If you take night classes in my area they are about £600 for 2 A-Levels.

I personally think that whatever platform you choose will be a good investment. Even if you have to pay there is often funding/subsidies available for people in your position.

Never too late. Each module is around £40-£70.

Buy the exam boards text book, do plenty of past papers, Register in a private college, take the exam and your done.

Self teach and enter privately, costs like £14 per exam. Might be a little awkward sitting exams with teens, but you'll soon get over it.
one of my good friends who I've met through college last year is 22 and re taking her A levels, she's done pretty well, got 4 A's at AS plus applied for oxford.

youve not taken into account the centres fees which can takes the price up by quite a bit more, local one here costs 50 quid per exam, and more for things like courseworks

Local one near mine is a lot cheaper, best asking 6th forms who accept private candidates. If you do a whole A-Level, they charge (here) £14 per exam and then an extra £25 to cover admin fees. But I appreciate that other places charge more.
Erm. You're my age. Which means you probably did old spec A levels. I'm not sure if you can on a lot of subjects (though I know you can with maths, as I did retakes between old and new spec)

What subjects did you do, what do you want to retake (module codes etc) and I can tell you if it was old or new spec.
