    Greetings TSR.

    I'm attempting to do both A-level Mathematics and A-level Physics in a year at home.

    I will register as a private candidate at my nearest sixth form.

    Do you think it is possible to get an A* in just one year?

    Would I need a tutor?

    How many hours a day do you think I should take to study these two subjects?

    Any tips possibly?

    Thank you for taking your time to read my post and all comments are welcome.

    It is easily possible. You may benefit from a tutor, but honestly TSR is full of people who find A level standard maths trivial so you have all the free help you could ever want. How long you need to spend on it will depend on your aptitude and how well you can retain information.

    Best of luck!
