I'm taking the O Levels later this year and i'm setting the plans for my A Levels next year. Due to my health issue (cervical spondylosis) I feel like studying for the A Levels at home is the best option for me. I'm knew to homeschooling but I'm very disciplined in my studies so I would be able to cope. I'd like to be clarified on the whole process of studying the A Levels from home without attending an educational establishment or college. Do i simply purchase the textbooks and begin? Do i need a private tutor?

What are your experiences studying the A Levels and how should i go about my decision?

Yes its pretty straightforward. Look up homeschooling, but you may have to tell your LEA if you are under 18 if your intention.

Method 1 Use an online course like clouldlearn, but they arent that cheap. Loads of others. they give you a set of notes and some tutor access.

Method 2. Get the spec, do some research, choose textbooks and go. Cheapest method. Pick a board with lots of resources. Pick a spec you are interested in as well. This is the cheapest method.


Information on private candidates hear using AQA as an example.

See what money support you can get, if any.

Things like languages and sciences are problematic and more expensive because of practicals and coursework.
