At the moment I am studying just two AS levels in Maths and ICT, as this narrows my options for a good University I would like to take another one next year. I just don't know where to get a information on taking a A level i one year. And still the biggest problem is that I have no GCES grades as I have studied abroad.
Some information will be really helpful

Everyone that does further maths usually does normal maths in a year. I know people who have done subjects in a year, probably a lot of people here have. You can also do intensive course A levels at some colleges which do the full things in a year. Just enter yourself for the exams, get the necessary revision guides/textbooks and do it. You need to have very good self control though.

^ It tends to be the better schools which do A-level Maths in a year and further the next

:ditto: :p: I'll be doing six A-level Maths modules this year (C1,2,3,4 M1, S1) then seven next year for the A-level in Further Maths (FP1,2,3, M2,3 S2 D1).

Of course, it's still kind of cheating...as it does take up two of my option blocks and I'm not doing any Further Maths until July :p:

I'm doing A-level ICT in a year because my college doesn't offer it as a 2 year course...

Some schools and colleges offer courses where you can do a full A-level in a year, but if you can't find one, you could try teaching yourself. It would be a lot of work, but you will need 3 full A-levels to get into a decent uni.

Does someone know, where can I get information on self-teaching and how can I enter myself for the exams

Do you want to do a distance learning course or just completely teach yourself? Distance learning courses are a bit more structured because they're broken down into chunks and you have a tutor to mark your work, but the're also very expensive. If you want to completely teach yourself, try to find a textbook that caters for your exam board and syllabus (your school/college might let you borrow one for the year if it's a subject they teach) download the specification from the exam board's website, order some past papers and download the examiner's report. Your school/college would probably let you sit the exams there if you ask your exams officer, but if not, go through all the schools and colleges in your area until you find one that will let you enter as a private candidate.

It is possible but may be difficult with science subjects.

Yeah so then if we flop on, say, M3, our D1 counts instead. Basically we sit 13 modules, the best 12 of which will be certificated. M3 is better than D1 for the majority for us who'll go on to read Maths/Physics/Engineering-related courses.
