    hi, Im seriously screwed
    i've got 2 alevels done with C,B. i need a third one, and i need to do it it 3 months, will be appearing in this may/june session as a private candidate. Suggest me some full alevels subjects that are doable. Im aiming for a C, since i have no time.

    p.s: i know i've screwed, so i dont need anyone telling me. So if you cant give me some useful advice, dont bother posting here telling how im screwed.

    Thanks a million

    If you needed another A-level, you should have started sooner.

    Which subjects do you enjoy and which are you good at? If we know that, we can make good suggestions.

    No, someone with no prior experience cannot self-study 6 maths modules in three months. It's just not doable.

    Maybe physics? It's easier and there are fewer exams. However if you can't take the practical assessments you lose 20% of the marks automatically.

    Why don't you take a gap year to do a full A level? That way you have a much higher chance of getting a better grade like an A.

    Yeah it's possible and so far seems like your best option. You should ask the college if they will let you sit the practicals though because the worst that can happen is they say no. If they say yes, you get more chance of marks.

    Keep thinking of other options though.

    It's generally said to be a hard subject though.
    Also, you aren't doing it in 3 months.

    It's not that hard. True, any subject of that kind will be difficult in 3 months though.

    OP have you thought about the A-levels that are considered extremely easy such as general studies? They may or may not be useful for your needs.

    I can't really comment on sociology because I didn't take it. If it seems better to you then take it.
