Hey. I am haven't actually done it yet, I'm in the same position as you
But I'm doing this with three A levels. Judging from the self study economics threads I was talking on a few minutes ago, those self teaching the subject are finding it ok. I'm super scared though, I'm praying I don't get stressed half way through and give up. But I'm planning to spend a lot of hours on each subject, no social life for me what so ever- TSR would be the only place I'd visit that is 'social' but to ask questions about the course and see how everyone else is doing as many seem to be self teaching this year

Ok, so, I didn't do this in one year, but here are some things to think about if you're going to do this - the difference between the A2 and AS modules is substantial in terms of what the examiner wants. Firstly, you build on the AS modules significantly, so make sure you teach yourself these first. Secondly, the essays for the A2 modules require much greater evaluation and depth than the AS essays do.

If you're going to do this, then I would suggest learning the AS course and practising essays by Christmas, or end of January at the latest, and then giving yourself more time to develop your understanding for A2, and developing your essay evaluation ready for the exams in June!

Oh I understand now, yea it's definitely possible. It's just do you have interests in those A levels? It's hard work tbh. But doable.

What would you like to study at university?
Once that's stated, then you could look at the A levels you may or may not need. There's virtually hardly any maths in Psychology and Economics (so I've heard from friends currently taking it, some had C grades at GCSE). Then with Maths A level, this is where things could become difficult. But even with my low grade at GCSE I still want to take it at A level. Is this wise? No but the course I would like to study requires maths.

I want to study Business management or Economics. A level maths is a lot lot harder than GCSE maths, but if you like the subject go for it. You will have to practice a lot tho.

Hey are you still self studying economics A level in one year.
Nope, not anymore, decided to carry on with Physics. Although I would have done Economics if I was predicted an A but I wasn't because I hadn't done the AS for them to judge me for it. Good luck with it, it's not difficult to do in a year, you'll just need good motivation and time management.

Mobbsyy91 has given a good structure to follow which I was going to do if I did do economics. You'll also see another thread that I've made where a lot of self studiers have got together to talk about it.
