So last year I was at sixth form in London and didn't perform so well at the end of AS for a variety of different reasons. I have now moved abroad (family circumstances) and I'm currently taking 3 new A Levels from home with UK Open College. I'm taking Government and Politics, Psychology and Sociology.
When you pay for the courses you have a choice of paper-based or online based- I picked online as it's just more convenient-- so all the matierial I need is online for me.
With this online version, all topics are split into lessons. For example with G&P you have an intro, then lesson 1.1 (Participation and voting behaviour), lesson 1.2 (PArtisian and class identification)...etc. It's all there and you just read through it and there's mini tasks at the end of each sub-topic.
Sorry to ramble but wanted to give an idea of what is actually there. My problem is I'm given all of this but just don't know how to actually learn it. It's all well and good reading it over and over again but when you get to unit 2 you start to forget unit 1. I was wondering if anyone else is self-teaching themselves A Levels and how you are absorbing the info... if anyone has study tips and whatnot? I have tried taking notes as I'm reading but it doesn't seem to be helping me.
I have purchased the textbooks for each subject aswell and have been going through that aswell. I just feel like there's a great deal of exam technique that I'm lacking.
Any help will do guys! Thanks!
