Two full A levels in 1 year - doable? Watch
Newbie here. I am now what you would call a mature student (32) and am looking at a route into University to study a health sciences degree (haven't finalised which one yet, most likely Dietetics).
I'm looking at doing two A levels but would want to get them done as quickly as possible whilst still getting A/B grades to keep my options open for the best Universities.
Specifically, I'm thinking of studying Maths and Biology via distance learning and putting myself in as an external candidate somewhere. From research it seems that I'd want to have the practical endorsement for Biology, but Maths should be more straightforward, so it really boils down to workload.
Has anybody else here done two full science A levels in one year? What sort of time commitment do you think I'd be looking at each week? Could you have a part time job alongside it?
I got a B in Maths and an A* in Biology at GCSE - but this was 15 years ago now!!
Any advice appreciated.
I can't help with the A level question, I have never done a levels and opted for the access course myself, I just started this week One good thing about access is you get a learners loan for it, however if you go on to university the loan for the access course is written off (I am in Scotland, but I believe this is the same in England).
