    Hi all,

    I am third year law student looking to self-learn/be tutored to get physics and math a-levels. Maths is easy as I can sit the exams at a local school, but physics has practical requirements which I understand present a big challenge to students wanting to take an a-level again.

    Does anyone know of any ways to get around this? Is there an exam board without a mandatory practical element? Or is there another work around?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to self study a Access to HE/Foundation course as well and sit the exams somewhere? This would be easier than 2 a levels after all

    Many thanks.

    Try IAL physics . Units 3 and 6 are not held in a lab , they're externally assessed .

    Yes i just found it as well.
    International students can sit GCE or IAL but british can only sit IAL.
    Anyway sorry for the misinformation .
