    yah...but things kinda work differently in my country or rather school, so its kinda hard to explain my situation...my only option is to write my a levels at this point becoz i cant retake any of my courses coz ive passed them, school policy.... just wanted to know, if one can effectively study their a levels at home,,,,plus ive got uni courses to deal with

    It would definitely be possible to study your a levels at home. I did exactly that as well as many of my friends. My teachers were rubbish so eventually I stopped going classes all together. But really it depends on your work ethic. Do you think you'll be motivated enough to do the work on your own?

    And how long do you have till you have to take your exams? I personally think a gap year is a great idea.
