Hello,I finished three A-Levels in arts/humanities subjects at A*BB but I decided a few months ago I'd like to study an engineering subject at university.

The only problem is I don't have Math and Physics A-Levels, so I thought it would make sense to take a gap year. I realized my local college does A-Level Maths in one year so I decided to enroll on their course.However, I couldn't enroll on their physics course because I don't have a GCSE in Science. I was supposed to do it at secondary school around 4 years ago but they took me out of the class because of bullying related problems. Therefore, the only way I could get an AS/A-Level in Physics would be to self study it. I don't know where to start though. For example, what topics in AS/A-Level Physics rely on knowledge gained from the GCSE? Should I self-teach myself modules from GCSE physics before self-teaching the A-Level? I'd appreciate it if someone could help me create a study plan or something.

TL;DR: can someone explain to me how I could self study AS Physics with no prior knowledge of physics?

Well, if you are a genius...otherwise there's no way you can do that

You can study it, no prior knowledge is necessarily required. Even those studying it at A level barely recall anything from GCSE. Though I admit that it can be very difficult. Have you considered doing a foundation year?
