Hi there,
I'm currently doing my a levels independently, with the help of the National Extension College. This year I'm doing Classical Civilisations and next year I'm planning to do English Lit and History. I'm very happy with NEC and was going to do all the subjects with them, but the problem is that for History they use the Edexcel specification. I find the OCR one much more interesting, but all distance learning websites I've found so far use either Edexcel or AQA. Do you know of any that use OCR? If not, how difficult do you think it would be for me to study it completely without help?
Cheers,
Joanna

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Tank Girl now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

If you are sufficiently motivated then you can certainly teach yourself. Plus you could use some of the money you will save to to spend some time with a tutor if you feel it is necessary.

All exam boards provide a variety of units.

Stick with Edexcel because they are the best history exam board and have a lot of resources available.

Look at the link below (pages 8-11)

If the new spec History still has coursework then you will need someone (i.e. a tutor) to authenticate it before you can submit it.
