Firstly, contacting universities directly if you're from an unusual educational background is a good idea. You should be able to do this via email, at least initially, and they will be able to give you the best advice.

However, being in the situation of having got to A-level standard without having any tutors or teachers does make you pretty unusual, and most university application systems don't really support this. If you organise some tutoring now, then your tutor may be able to help you when it comes to applying.

Alternatively, if you work or volunteer, some institutions may accept references from an employer or a volunteer leader.
