Hello. So I'm planning on doing an A Level in Sociology (the new A Level specification) through distanced learning because I'm currently not doing well in one of my A Levels, and I don't think I will get the graded needed for university. So then I decided to take a gap year to do one A Level. I just wanted to know if it's possible to do Sociology A Level in under a year through distanced learning? how hard would it be to achieve a B grade and above? and is the workload manageable?

Also if anyone is studying an A Level through DL, which company is the best in terms of support, resources etc. (for Sociology if possible)?

Thank you

Hi, My name is Jo I work at the National Extension College, we're a distance learning college. It is possible to do an A level in a year and get a good grade if you have the time to devote to it. At this stage you should be aiming for the 2018 exams however, as the final deadline for applying for exams for summer 2017 has nearly passed and you would struggle to study enough of the course to be prepared for the exams this year. You should allow around 300-350 hours of study for an A level course, plus additional time to complete your assignments. So if you were looking to complete in 1 academic year you should be allowing approximately 8-9 hours of study per week plus additional time to complete your assignments. I hope this is of help.
