Hi, I am 18 and currently attempting my A2 levels for the second time round with not much success. I dropped out half way through A2 in the last academic year with the plan to retake in September. I suffer with really bad anxiety and hoped that by September it'd be fixed - it hasn't. Now with my last opportunity to get a levels I can't see myself continuing throughout the whole year so I was wondering if I'd be able to study at home.
Does anyone know of the cheapest but still reputable way to do this? I have looked into government loans but you have to be over the age of 24 so I don't qualify.
Also, has anyone else studied a levels at home to any success? Any feedback would be much appreciated, thanks!

You first need to check if you can do your particular A level privately. If they include course work then you need to be at school/college. Then you need to find an exam centre that is easily accessible for you and will accept you as a private candidate. Then think about things like a tutor and resources.

I'm doing this currently, and dont know much about this. For a decent uni, I think you need 3-4 A Levels with good grades, so pick 3-4, get a tutor, find an exam centre that accept private candidates (beware, their exam fees may be big), and take the exam, get certificates, and apply to a uni. AT least, thats what I;m planning to do.
I too would like to know more about it.
