Decided not to do the A levels and just continue with health and social care level 3 which I have to do with the course anyway. Its hard enough trying to do coursework whilst I work full time so I wouldnt dream of doing A levels :lol: It would just be too much stress that I am in no position to handle.
Ah, I see ...,,,Working as a Pastry Chef full time; working 50+ odd hours a week..I sort of understand what you mean. It can't be easy.

Ok, gonna go do some more research,
Thanks for responding to a post so old.
I appreciate it!
Bye

I'm confused to what you'd have to attend in order to facilitate A-levels with a full time job like do you still have to attend classes or purely just constant revision?

When facilitating A-levels around 40 hour working weeks, do you have to attend classes or is it purely revision?

I'll be doing 37 hours a week at a hospital. I'm not going to sixth form/college so will be doing the exams as an external student and will be doing all the studying on my own? I'll be doing A2 maths (I got B in AS), A2 Psychology (Got a C in AS) and AS and A2 Religious Studies (Cause I need a third option). I'm not sure if this is unrealistic but I really want to apply for Nursing in the coming year and if I have the grades then it will be so much easier and I can spend a year working/relaxing if I get offers. Idk am I setting myself up for failure?
Did you manage to do it?

LMAOOO NOO. I do think it was slightly unrealistic to think I could do it, especially since whilst working I was also required to do health and social based coursework. But I put my "failure" down to my mental health issues at the time and not my capability to be honest. I also gained a lot of experience just working at the hospital. I'm also currently doing an access course which will hopefully get me into uni as well. And having all this time has also made me reconsider my career choice from nursing to occupational therapy

What you'd normally do is distance learn and hire a private tutor if you were stuck on any concept

Tbh I’m retaking my gcse 4 of them and I’m working full time at least 45 hours a week I still try my best to revise but long run I don’t think I’ll be doing very well if I carry on like that but everyone’s different I say if u can do u can do it
