How do you study A levels from home efficiently? I was thinking of buying textbooks relevant to my courses and studying them and making revision notes from them, doing past papers frequently to see what I need to improve on. Any other ideas, I want to achieve the highest grades possible, I going to study as often as I possibly can. Any other recommendations? I am studying A level English lit, psychology, business studies and not sure about the fourth yet, would biology be possible? or should I do another easier subject? I am not sure about a future career yet and I am keeping my options open!

I don't think it would be possible to do bio at home as you have to do lab practicles. As for what you've said, I think that's the best way to study at home, maybe consider getting a tutor as it would be very difficult to do subjects like lit without any feedback on how to improve

Hi!
How come you are teaching them to yourself? If you are self teaching i would recommend doing only three A levels, it can be tough when teachers aren't making resources for you. To be honest, you have the correct ideas. Make sure to buy the latest textbook for the course and be careful about which exams you choose. For biology, ocr had a really nice textbook which i though was easy to self teach from.

Sounds dumb but I did one year of sixth form and it just felt wrong being there, also my teachers were super bad and I pretty much taught myself anyways, it will be better for me to teach myself. You're right though, I think I will only do 3 a levels as I already have an AS level anyway, thanks And also thank you for the extra advice!

You seem set on teaching yourself, but i think you'll get much better results if you either go back to your sixth form or go to a completely different college/sixth form. What did you get in as?

I didn't do my AS exams as my school are weird and do both AS and A2 exams in 2017 at the same time. The only AS I did was for health and social care. I know you think it would be better but I don't exaggerate when I say I learned nothing from my teachers.
