    I'm thinking of doing 3 independent a levels but I'm wondering how I should go about doing this?
    I've tried to find different services for this and I've only found NEC (http://www.nec.ac.uk/) and ICS (https://www.icslearn.co.uk/courses/a-levels/). Are these the only ones that are available, or are there any others?
    Also, if I wanted to do it solely alone how would I go about doing that? such as how would I find the correct rubric and the course material to study?

    Thank you

    Which A levels are you thinking of doing?
    I'm mainly thinking about doing humanities, but I'm not quite sure yet. I'm currently looking at the following; law, government & politics, philosophy, sociology and psychology.

    Do you know of any good online providers for a levels in general?

    All of those have the benefit of having no coursework which makes life a lot simpler. There is no requirement to sign up to an online course. If you can just teach yourself from books and past papers (with or without a bit of help from a tutor) then you can just find yourself an exam centre (=any secondary school or college) willing to accept you as a private candidate and enter for the exams. The online courses rarely cover this aspect anyway so you would have to budget for it in addition to the cost of the course.
