Physics, Chemistry and Biology all pose a significant challenge for home-schooled students because of the need to pass the assessed practicals. These don't affect your grade, but a pass in them is a condition of most university offers that require these A levels. It is hard to find anywhere to take the practicals (and so anywhere to accept you for the exams) and when you do find somewhere it is expensive (c£700 per A level). It's worth looking to see if the distance learning provider can offer any help with this.

yeah I've thought of that and I'm looking for someplace that help me with that problem but the main reason I wanna do homeschooling is that I've just moved countries amid pandemic and I'm finding it really difficult to find good sixth form or colleges that I think would suit me

If the OP is taking exams outside the UK then they'll be doing IAL (or Cambridge) which don't have the assessed practicals. Lunabla2k where are you going to be studying? And where are you intending on taking the exams?
