    Hi all,

    I am a university drop out looking to get back in to education after several years working in finance, I've just started a less stressful job and because of this I now feel I have the time to self study an A level or two with the aim of possibly going to university for Geology in a couple of years, I already hold the below A/AS levels

    A - Chemistry
    B - Physics
    B - Biology (AS)
    C - Maths (AS)

    I do realise id probably be able to get a place in some universities with the A levels I already hold but I want to ease myself back in to it by doing some self study, my question is what do you guys think I should take, Geology would be the obvious one but do you think it would be worth me re doing my Bio one too? I sat the AS in 2013 so Im assuming the course has changed since then and I'd have to resit the entire qualification.

    Any advice from self studiers/ anyone else much appreciated!

    Cheers all!

    Try and do Edexcel SNAB course for A Level Bio..i can help u and its not hard that much...
