    Long story short, I am doing my alevels as a private candidate, biology, chemistry and maths.... Unfortunately AS and A2 in a year, I have been studying these subjects for years now so I'm quite familiar biology and not finding it hard as I have got all my notes and past exam papers.... Chemistry looks okay, and I'm guessing I will be doing a lot of past papers for maths and using exam solutions ... Does anyone have any opinions .... Would I even be able to get above a C?

    I don't know about the private candidate side of it, i.e doing everything alone.

    But the work load is doable, my friend did As and A2 in one year and got AAB and was accepted into medicine.

    All my friends have been going on about how I'm going to fail and that the work load is just too much... But I'm finding it ok actually, I'm just scared to be honest....
