hey! sounds amazing. I currently do law, psychology and business studies. I study with Wolsey Hall Oxford homeschooling college and they are super supportive without being overbearing if you know what i mean. It is nice to be able to learn the way you want but still have that support from teachers and tutors when needed. Have you done Gcse's or started a college?
I've done my GCSEs, I got a A*A*AAAAABBD*D*.

you defo will be able to go to uni! if anything the non traditional can actually help you get in to uni if you mention that it has taught you motivation and dedication and that sort of stuff because it will make you stand out in a good way!

Hopefully we’ll all succeed. Where do you all want to go after a-levels, what unis, what courses or what employment?

I’m so glad I’ve found a thread like this!!!!!! I’m self studying maths, further maths and economics. It’s so hard to find people that are also self studying. How’s everyone experiences on it. What grades are you aiming for?

Hey! I know, it’s great, I thought I was alone! I’m liking it so far, I just love the freedom, I can’t start and end my day whenever I wish, as long as I get my full day of work in. I’m aiming for A’s and B’s.

Hi, I started homeschooling for a levels using an online college last october and i am currently in my second and last year. I am curious to see if there is anybody else within the UK that has chosen to study them at home and then sit them as an external candidate.

Also if anybody would like to start homeschooling for college i am more than happy to share advice and help you! It would be nice to find others who are going through the same journey as myself as there is not a lot of us! Also if you are homeschooling, which subjects do you take!?
I practically taught myself my A levels - English Lit, History and Maths, my attendance at sixth form was about 50% and I didn't find the majority of my lessons very good/ helpful when I did go in. Got my results last month A*A*A

Guys has anyone ever been with Oxford Open Learning, their History course seems so interesting (modern British and American), with coursework of racial inequality in America. The tutor actually wrote the textbook too! But has anyone ever used them, and good reviews?

Hey on Monday I will start doing my a levels online. I’m doing law, Spanish and business. I’m pretty scared due to the fact that I think I will fail my a levels and I have no confidence and hope in myself. I just about passed my GCSEs but that’s because I didn’t revise so I regretted that.

Anyways how are you finding law and business ?

Currently doing GCSEs at home, but know a lot of people who have done/are doing A-levels at home, heard only good things from them. Best of luck!

i think the best thing you can do is set yourself a schedule and try to be strict with yourself. i can’t speak for everyone, but personally for me it took at least a couple months to get motivated and used to the routine. good luck and take it easy!!!
