    Yeah, she can sit as a private candidate and self teach the course, if she can't find college willing to take her.

    Yes, it's possible. My friend only did two A-levels due to mental health issues and is returning to college next year to do one whole A-level in a single year, instead of the usual two.

    Yeah she can but will need to check with college about any fees. I am only doing 2 A Levels next year, but I only have 3 AS Levels atm so I get it funded for me; I think it will be different if she already has full A Levels.

    I don't know much about what the financial system is, sorry. You'll need to check with your college.
