Is self studying one a level sensible?Watch
I am torn between self studying Maths or Politics, which one would you recommend?
I know you think doing 4 will make you standout, especially if one is self-studied, but realistically trying to self-teach yourself an A-Level, will detract from the rest of your three.
The majority of the people who go to top unis will have 3 A-Levels; 4 is a stretch for a lot of people and having one of those self-taught would be very difficult. I wouldn't recommend it.
Me (literally taken 4 a levels and had to teach myself the 2 of the courses to myself): The pain is not worth it my friend. If u have to self study, take maths. finding resources on politics will be much more difficult. Maths is quite a simple object if u practice early on
