    I did both my O levels and A levels privately however in my country, we have a concept of "Academy". Basically this is like school but in the evening time. It's like getting a tutor but we actually go to these academies as they're in regular buildings.
    In my uni applications I don't know what to mention.
    Should I state self studied ? Or should I just mention the name of my academy in the school/college section?
    Thanks in advance!

    Sounds sorta like the Night Schools we have here. I'd say it depends on whether or not a tutor can give you a reference.

    I've popped your thread into this sub-forum so that you'll hopefully get the replies you're after.

    As user above has said, in UK this is referred to informally as "Nigh School".

    My advice* would be to include in your application the qualifications you have from this. I take it you sat particular courses there?

    I should point out that I'm not an expert in this field.

    Then I think (not an expert though) that you should include the qualifications you gained from that.:yep:
