    hi,

    i work full time in an uninteresting job and as im going to hit 27 this year ive decided to stop delaying my dream of a job in the aerospace industry.
    i cant afford to leave my job and due to my working times and location evening classes are not viable so im left with self teaching.
    it has been some time since i was in education and i have not studied a levels previously so the module structure is unfamiliar to me which is where im getting a bit lost, i feel confident in learning the subjects i just dont know which modules to begin with and which exam boards books to work with (can i mix and match or is it a good idea to stick with one only). im also unsure as to how i should approach physics as its my understanding that a significant portion of the grade is made with a practical unit and if im self teaching im not sure how to account for that,

    any help on this would be much apreciated

    i got an A and B for science double awrd though i got a U in maths

    however i have a BTEC lvl 2 in maths which i got on a Access to science course when i was 19, i found the subjects easy (hence why im confident i can self teach) but i only got a PPP on that course because i was having to much fun living the student life.
    unfortunately PPP in physics chemistry and biology wont get you onto a physics course at any uni hence the going for a levels
