Looking to self-study A-levels, but seeking advice on how to do this. watch

    • Thread Starter

    Over the course of the next academic year, I would like to self-study A-level Physics & Further Mathematics (covering both AS and A2), to be ready for the summer exam period; unfortunately, I have no idea how I should go about this.

    One of my main concerns is the practical work & coursework for physics, as I am unsure how i would carry this out; unless I am mistaken, I believe I would need to have monitored practical work and examiner-assessed coursework, but how would I arrange these events?

    Has anyone on this site been through a similar process, that could advise me on what i should do? Even help in choosing a suitable examining board that may be more accommodating to this method of study, would be very useful to me.

    Any assistance is very much appreciated.

    Someone asked a similar question about chemistry yesterday if I remember correctly. Contact the exam boards to find out if this is possible first and then look at possible exam centers. Math should be fine I think but you may struggle with the physics.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
