    I have no doubt in my ability and as to whether I can achieve the the grades themselves, I was taken out of college for medical reasons and have since worked for the family but have come to the realisation I want to carry on with higher education.

    It’s just the timeframe that worries me, especially as it’ll be via distance learning as no college offers mature student A-levels near me. I can still dedicate 40+ hours a week to them though easily.

    The other main concern I have is that if I do struggle with the timeframe and have to resist some modules next year, I would have wasted another year and also would be looked unfavourabley upon in applying for uni as I’d have had to retake certain modules. So I may as well split them up into 2 years if that’s the case.

    Also if anyone can recommend a top distance learning provider it’ll be very much appreciated as having a tough time picking one.


    Thanks so much in advance people xox

    I can't recommend a provider, but it's not impossible if you are very dedicated. Also I would suggest searching for A-Level tutors near you in case you need a little bit of support now and then. That can make a big difference.
