    Sometimes easier to pass and they can get you past min requirement hurdle, whereas you might previously have been failing GCSE.

    What are both the advantages and disadvantages of A Levels?

    Universally recognised by all Unis. 2 years and demanding. Harder to self teach.

    What are both the advantages and disadvantages of access course?

    + Only takes a year and might be the only thing available as A levels post 18 are hard to find. It can get you into uni.

    - Costs money although you can get it back. Less in depth, less widely accepted, not as good post uni qualification.
