    I want to study natural science with the Open University - however I have no formal A Levels.
    I'm an A-grade college drop out as a result of mental illness. Can I handle a 4 year science course? Anyone with experience or advice is very much appreciated!

    It depends on your knowledge that you generally have of Natural Sciences. Usually A-Levels help prepare to do the degree but for open college you don't need A-Levels. You should only consider doing it if your sure that this is the right degree for you and if you can handle the work since you might not know the work load of A-Levels.
