    Hi everyone. I go to a state school where the teaching has not been the best throughout GCSE level. I am now moving into A level and am wondering if it is possible to self study my A levels as the teaching may not be up to scratch. Any tips and tricks to help me?

    I am wanting to study:
    Maths
    Further Maths
    Economics
    Physics
    Government and politics

    Thank you

    Well its definitely possible The hardest bit I think about it is the motivation and that is very hard to find for a subject you teach yourself. I am trying to teach myself AS Further Math, and although it isn't necessarily hard, I am just lacking the motive to do it

    To be honest, not great but its ok. I was supposed to finish FP1 within the summer but now I am only half way through. I do though believe that once I am back in sixth form, I will finish Fp1, fp2 and D1 because working in school gives me the right mindset. I haven't been doing it in the summer because i've been procrastinating playing fifa
