Ok so I'm 22 and I've decided I want to sit my A-levels. I'm probably going to go down the private candidate route as I want to study Experimental Psychology or PPL at Oxford and all my local colleges don't accept people over 18 unless they do an access course.
I was thinking of doing these A-levels over 2 years self study:
- Maths (A level)
- Psychology (A level)
- Physics (A levels)
- English language (AS)
But im not sure if I should replace Physics with Biology. When I sat my GCSEs 6 years ago, I got 9A*s and 5As and I was always stronger in Physics than I was in Biology.
What do you think?
Physics or Biology A level? Watch

If you're doing Maths, I would stick with Physics. Some of the Physics content is also covered in Maths (such as mechanics), however it's all down to what you want to study at uni (presuming you want to go to uni?).
Also, just because you were stronger at one subject as GCSE than another, does not automatically mean you will be stronger at that particular subject than the other at A-Level. A-Levels are a completely different ball-game. My strongest subject at GCSE was Biology by a clear mile, and is my weakest currently at A-Level.
