Can 2 full A levels be studied in one year? (Maths, Sociology) by distance learning and by studying pretty much full time?

I’m in the same situation, Maths and Politics, but Maths is quite simple to speed through in, just get every topic of the spec, and learn them. The essay ones are the tricky ones.

Are you studying maths through a distance learning online college?

No, I just think for Maths it’s not worth the expense, it’s quite self explanatory, and there’s tons of resources online, like examsolutions have the whole spec. For Politics I am yes.

Yes it’s possible. I did 3 A levels (math, recon and further math) and 1 AS (politics) in 1 year because I wanted to save money since my college was a private one which costed more. Now I’m going into my 3rd year in Warwick uni. It’s doable, make use of all the online resources available for maths (ie. exam solutions) and work through all the past papers year by year. Then redo them by difficulty - I think someone actually arranged it in bronze silver gold papers so work them through for the second time in that order to check your understanding and you’re good to go. Can’t help with sociology though, didn’t manage to do well for AS politics.

If you do them as a private candidate do you need to do both as and a level exams or just the a level exams to get into uni?

It depends on your uni I think, you need to check grade requirements. In that case, I did 3A and 4AS in 1 year. I think for maths you require AS level as well since for A level maths and further maths they count AS marks as part of A level final grade. When I took it, it was a modular system. Not sure it has changed though

In the new system of a-levels, all of the content is covered and assessed in the A2 exams, google it.

I think if you don’t have anyone to predict you a grade you can either a) take a gap year, and apply with your actual grades or b) apply through clearing.

How come you can’t get it for maths? How old are you and what so then you can apply with your predicted grades a year after?

I’m not doing maths through a distance learning provider, in the age of Year 13 students, the year after, I will already have all my results.
