    Describe your A level Experience?
    I'm currently trying to self teach so my experience is different to others'. It's difficult and recently I've slumped in my motivation. However I am determined to change this and want to prove all the people who said I couldn't do it wrong,

    What is your experience?

    Describe your A level Experience?
    My A Level experience was bad. My school never let me leave when I had lunch or free lessons (even when I had no more lessons for the day). This meant I felt like I was meant to be working all the time as my teachers would be observing if I was doing work or not. Also, I have gathered from A Levels that they don't prepare you for University. I am in college now and I have to do assignments that have strict deadlines. Any assignments that are late cannot receive the highest mark. Assignments prepare you for University, not doing 3 or more A Levels that have homeworks that you can get away with without handing it in on time. A Levels don't involve coursework as often as they did in the past and just have exams which IMO doesn't prepare you for University. IMO college has matured me more for University than A Levels will. A lot of people will come out of A Levels and go to University and will feel the pressure of assignments and strict deadlines, etc. These things don't exist in A Levels and some might end up dropping out due to not being able to take the pressure. Although, some do want to learn the hard way when they go to University, most people end up struggling IMO.
