    Hiya!
    So...
    my options for AS levels are as follows:
    Maths
    Further Maths
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Physics
    French

    However at my school they only allow us to take 4 plus an "enrichment" which Further Maths counts as. I really want to take all of these subjects as feel that I could cope with them, but I think my only option is to self teach- at least partially- one of them.
    Any ideas how I could go about it? i.e. approaching teachers to suggest it, how to actually go about self-teaching it?

    Thanks for all of your help guys!

    Out of those...

    I'm self teaching and will self teach maths and further maths.

    Most resources available for it, so I'd say those. Then you can have the others taught.

    I'd say biology is the next best bet.

    Have you sorted practical assessments and that out? If you were to?

    Maths would be the easiest to self teach but then I suppose your school won't allow you to do further maths as the enrichment? If that's the case self teach both. They will be the easiest to and there is more resources online for those than any of the others.

    If I were to self-teach biology I could probably do the practicals at school with the classes who are taught, but I would need to check this out

    See what they'd let you do first.

    Then we can help decide from there

    I have known people who have self taught each of those and the people who tried chemistry and physics gave up after the first unit because they said it was too tough. The person who did maths succeeded as did the girl who did French. I'd say French might be easiest to self-teach if you got one of those good CD's and keep practising- but I'm only guessing.

    I'm self teaching biology A2, I can do the written exams in school but I had to find another college to do the practical unit. Ended up costing me £450 just for that
