hi guys , just wondered if you could help me , I am starting a self study course which I have created , which include watching seminars and lectures roughly about 200 of these to get through , and reading books and taking notes , also using Cambridge past syllabus for help , and past papers from edexcel .
After 2 years of study Then I will put in for an A level exam .

Maybe check the specification of the exam you wish to take to make sure what you study is relevant to the exam. You will also have to deal with exam technique and exam format.

Sounds a bit chaotic. If you are going to self teach then male sure its relevant and you meet the criteria.
Make sure you have identified somewhere to sit the exam.
Make sure its available to private candidates.

Dont think you are getting what I am telling you.
ID the exam boards that offer A level Art History.
ID the exam boards that offer it to private candidates.
Read the specification and exam format. The specification will give you an indication of which areas need covering and possible source books.
Then you can apply accordingly.
You will also need to find an exam centre that is willing to let you sit the exam there.
You then need to sort out the payment and admin with the centre.

AQA no longer offer this subject.
Edexcel do.

It is actually wayyy too difficult to self teach and get above a C because there are no textbooks etc. and the amount of detail you need to know is ridiculous!!!
