How do you guys remain motivated and disciplined to self study A-levels? I have been trying to do it for the last 2 years but I just cannot motivate myself to learn the material for my subjects. I found it pretty easy to get an A* in A-level mathematics at Sixth Form and I left sixth form two years ago because I thought self teaching my other A-levels would be extremely easy. But, it's the opposite. Self teaching is much harder to do because nobody is forcing you to learn like you are forced at sixth form..

I don't find A-levels particularly difficult conceptually, but I just can't be bothered to study for it. I try to study for an hour and I just give up within 10 minutes =(

for me it took a few months of shutting myself in a room without my phone or anything and pretty much just forcing myself and not leaving until i’ve done what i wanted lmao. i built up the time slowly too, last year i was doing about an hour a day and now i do a few everyday. i think it helps if you’re studying something that you’re interested in so you can be more excited to learn about it too

I got to the point of being the same and decided i needed to do something about it so i have been using Flora the app where you set a timer like a goal for how long your study session needs to be and then you can actually link it to a payment method if you need a lot of motivation because if you stop that timer or come out of the app you actually pay money which goes towards planting trees. Another good app is forest where you build a virtual forest and gain points to again redeem gifts or eventually contribute to planting trees!

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!?
How many times a week and what times?

I'm very interested in this, mainly for A-Level law.

Not sure yet. My tutor hasn't told me to start researching yet but going to start in the next few weeks! Have you always homeschooled then or is this new?

This is entirely new! I live in France and am doing the fast track French (so I started around May last year) and am now in my first year of bio and chem. I was in the French education system before, but I wanted to do A-Levels instead of the bac général!

What about you?

Oh awesome! It's really nice to talk to someone else doing the course! Haha, I mean it's still a lot of research for the topics but I find it interesting and not too difficult. How about you? It must be easy for you too if you come to France often!
