I wish to study at a top university as my health condition has significantly improved.
There are A levels and the newer Access courses avaliable to me.
I need advice on which is the best course of action.
Where should I start?

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.
You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here.

My friend just got onto an access course and her course guarantees her a place at the same university (Glasgow) if she gets 2 Bs (one in each subject) or above - might be worth looking into. I thought that was pretty good (seems like a safer bet than 3 A Levels and UCAS!). Also, this is just my opinion and I've never been to college but it seems like generally universities are better working environments than colleges. Another thing is that A Levels would be more hpw than an access course. I guess it depends quite a lot on what kind of experience you'd like and whether you'd want to balance studies and work for instance. Then there's also the timescales: so 1 year for an access course vs. mostly like two for A Levels.
