    Hi everyone,

    27 year old fella hoping to go back to self-study my A Levels in the Sciences this year. I don't foresee a problem with the theory as I can get the books and do it myself. My only worry is the practical assessments as I won't have access to a classroom or teacher. Does anyone know places in the London area which provide these classes and assessments? Or has anyone done one of them?

    Thanks for reading.

    There's quite a few private centres around London but they are hella expensive, charging up to £600 for a single practical.

    3A tutors might help in Bristol
    Pembrokeshire college does classes too, I think.

    I'm pretty sure ISA's have been removed from all sciences?

    By ISA's do you mean practicals? They no longer form any part of your overall mark, but you must demonstrate you can adequately perform all tasks through a practical test.
