Good Afternoon,

Since school I there has been no significant academic achievement in terms of college or University. Now though I have complete regret over not trying hard enough with my studies and not achieving my potential.

As an option I want to self-teach A-levels. Mainly Economics, Business and Mathematics to ensure I have adequate qualifications to attend university and study Economics full-time.

1) Would universities look unfavorably at students who have achieved qualifications through 'Home Schooling'?

2) Does anybody have an experience with self-teaching the above subjects? And if so, what would you say the best learning resources are?

Thanks in advance for any help and constructive feedback.

Dont forget you have to sort out exam fees and exam centre fee.

1. No difference.

2. Your options are:

i) Self teach.

ii) Correspondence course.

iii). Access course.

You would probably be in a good position for Access, unless its one of the very top unis as your target.

Thank you for your feedback. Self-Teaching would be most appropriate in my current circumstances.
