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?
What is the name of the exam centre you are going to write your A-level exams in?

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
Brilliant results! I'm doing English lit and maths too! (Also physics and AS further maths although I'm not homeschooled). How did you revise for those subjects? Also did you apply to university? I'm sure Oxford and Cambridge and all the best places would take you gladly with those stellar grades!

How many times a week and what times?

I'm very interested in this, mainly for A-Level law.
Hi, only just saw this reply but my college specifically does not have a set timetable. Your studying is very independent. Every month I complete one module which I can see on my course page and then you must complete an assignment for A level law every month and for me I have a 100 mark essay (four 25 mark questions). So you decide when you complete the learning but that essay must be handed in on time!

My younger brother home-schooled for GCSEs, has gotten 6 GCSEs in Year7, and is now studying for another 6. He's gonna self study for A-Levels too in year9. Which A-Levels are you doing?

(Original post by tiaindie16)
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!?

Hi I started homeschooling 2 years ago, I sat AS english language & psychology in 2017, got a C in english & a D in psych..
Was continuing the full A-level from home but had to stop..
I’m now doing the full A-level. It’s hard bc it’s entirely self directed so I have no idea what I’m doing half the time!

If I was you I would swap Business for Economics.

Preferably Law for another A-Level as well.

This is because both law and business are in the non-facilitating list of A-Levels, as unis have a preferred list of A-Level subjects.

Because you're self teaching there's a lot of time still, assuming you are in year 12, Econ takes roughly 6-9 months to learn.

Why not pick Maths A-Level too? By far one of the easiest A-Levels to self-teach given the plethora of resources available online.

I am a tutor and I advice a lot of students on A-Level subjects to get into top unis, this is just my personal advice, ignore it if you don't like it

Thank you for your comment however I am in year 13 and am very happy with my choices. A lot of universities seem to be enthusiastic for most courses except any general studies. Could you possibly link this list of non-facilitating a levels??

any A-Levels which does not require coursework. Theoretically you still can do them, but it is just much more expensive.

Hi! How have you found learning in a whole different language and changing education systems? I'm thinking of doing the same thing and I'm a bit scared, altough my level of english is pretty good.

Hi! I’m considering homeschooling for a level biology chemistry and psychology however I would have to switch exam boards for psychology. Do you think I would be able to do the whole AS course in about 4 months with tutor support?

I think that would be perfectly doable. Try to learn all content in three months and leave the final month for solely revising. I’m doing three AS’s in May too.
