I'm looking to self-study an A-level to bolster prior academic performance. I was wondering how well Sociology lends itself to self-study? Is the structure of the course easy to follow and manage for somebody with no help from a tutor or parents? How many hours a week do you think I would need to allocate?
Also, does anybody know which exam board would be best for self-study? I'm looking for the one with the most easily-accessible resources, revisions material etc. and with the clearest structure and marking criteria. I've seen AQA mentioned a lot but also OCR.
Thanks in advance!

Imho, sociology below degree level is read, remember, regurgitate. No actual critical thinking involved.
My goto in Coursera. It's free, reputable, and you can get a certificate for most courses ~ £20 to £50, maybe more costly, but none that I've seen.
