    Yeah, last year at AS I literally self taught most of the course, and came out with an A, and I'm predicted an A* this year. The only trickly part is probably the structure of the methods answers (but you will have done similar to this last year in MIC.) I would say it's fine to learn content at home, but just make sure you're learning exam technique and essay structure at school with help from your however crap teachers

    Good luck!

    Use reliable notes and compare to others who self teach. And don't think that you're missing out by not getting taught by a proper teacher lol
