    *Unsure if this is in the right place*

    Basically, I completed my AS level in 2014-15.
    During my A2 year unforeseen circumstances mean't I could not carry on with my A2 courses.

    I am now 19, on an Apprenticeship in Facilities and Management... Fun times.

    Ideally I want to finish my A levels. Will I be able to continue from the AS levels that I currently have or will I have to start over?
    Do I need to contact local colleges for Adult courses?

    Yeah you can continue with the AS levels that you currently have however I think it depends which exam board you were doing because some exam boards for some subjects are changing the course like AQA are changing a lot of their courses and are no longer doing the same specification so you wouldn't be able to do the A2 with them as it will no longer be compatible with your AS , however that is depending on your exam board

    It depends on the subjects and whether they have yet been updated to new specifications.
    If they have been updated then unless you take A2 this summer you would have to start again.
    If they have not been updated, if you can find somewhere to take the exams and complete any coursework or practical components as a private candidate then you can continue what you have started.
    What subjects?

    Both are still using the specification you studied and exams will be available in summer 2017 and 2018. AS and A2 Resits should be available in 2019 for anyone who has completed the full A level in any previous exam series but you would not be able to take the A2 exams for the first time in 2019.

    I see. Well I am quite relieved then. What's the best way of studying and sitting A2?
    Ask at local colleges?

    You are unlikely to get a funded place at a college to study just two A2 subjects but you can only find out by asking. Your best option might be independent study using text books and Internet resources and maybe a bit of support from a private tutor. Alternatively you could buy a distance learning package from a reputable provider like NEC, though I don't know if they offer your subject/examiner combinations. You would then sit your exams as a private candidate at any local school/college willing to take you or at one of the private colleges/tutorial centres that offer them. This can be expensive and difficult to arrange so start your search early (now). Your old school/college might be the best place to start. I have no idea if either of those subjects have any coursework that needs to be assessed, that can be hard to arrange for private candidates.

    As gdunne points out if you want to study your A2s from home you could consider distance learning.

    We offer both these subjects so if you want more info you can visit our site www.nec.ac.uk or call us on 0800 389 2839.
