    I have tried to find a post/ topic / whatever it's called but none of them answer my question. My question is as a homeschool A level student studying the full a level in 1 year; what is the best way to do advance through the course? Should I study it in order of C1, C2, C3... Or does an A level topic carry on from the As level topic. So instead would it be better if I studied C1, C3, C2, C4? Any advice would be appreciated.

    I'd recommend C1, C2, applied module, C3, C4, applied module. That's how you'd do it in a class, and you can set yourself the target of finishing the first 3 by December/ doing a few mocks in January, then continuing on until April and then do revision.

    Great stuff, thanks. Does the C3 and C4 take longer to learn/ more content?

    From memory I think C2 has the most content.

    C4 is quite tricky so that may take more time to learn / grasp content.

    I did As and A2 in 1 year (9 months)
    C1 and c2 can be done in 2 month (sept and october) .... its easy to get an A
    Spend a month on each unit or less if u can... c1 is quite easy...
    I would recommend that you finish C1 C2 and S1 (or your other unit) by 1st january.
    Start c3 on january 1st. The school holiday at this time will really help you learn c3 quickly.
    C3 c4 and S2 take a month each generally to learn.
    Spending a month on each unit will leave you around 2 months to revise and go through as many practice papers.
    Is this the only a level your doing.
    Remember people normally do 4AS levels in 1 year
    So As and A2 maths is very achievable in 1 year providing u put in the work. Start today. I would recommend using maths videos and tutorials online to learn the content.

    I achieved an A and you can too!!

    Thanks for the reply, how many hours a night did you put in to get it done in a year? I'm putting in a couple and seem to be progressing through C1 fairly quickly. It seems more like high level GCSE in my opinion. But I am an advanced apprentice at an engineering company so I think 4 AS levels would be a bit too much as I'm already studying towards a qualification that is the equivalent of 3 A levels. Did you study any other A levels in the same time period of one year?
    Thanks
