    Hi all,
    After a lot of research into diatance learning providers i have realised the actual cost of studying a levels in biology, chemistry and psychology plus the exam entry fees and possible practical session fees is extortionate. Has anyone attempted to self teach? Also some people have said that if you are sitting exams next year (2017) that you can opt out ofthe practical skills but others have said seeing as medicine is fiercely competitive this woild go against you . also what would one do about obtaining an academic reference ? Anyone done the skills/practical side and know the costs? Im thinking if i self taught to sit exams this year i would have to pay out for practicals but i would have my grades and therefore if applying for next year would i not need an academic reference? Help!

    Self-teaching three science A levels would I imagine be very hard, wouldn't it be easier to do an Access to HE course?
