Doing 3 A level Composite exams in one year, good idea?Watch
im 17, i started my AS at a college in Oxford last year, but due to some personal reasons I had to pull out few days before the A2 term started this month and went back to Pakistan. I was lost and did not know what to do, so after some advice i registered with this DLR (Distant learning provider) and will start studying a fast tracked course to try and attempt the paper in Summer 2021, for which ill fly to the UK to give.
The subjects I am doing are Economics(Edexcel), Sociology(AQA) and Law(AQA). Law and sociology i will start from scratch. I'm going to be giving the exams composite as due to some reasons at home too do not have 2 years to do the whole course again, and even if i do not do great in Summer 2021, i can re-try in Winter 2021.
I'm fully motivated and will continue to be so aswell, and the 1 year pressure will keep me working, but i question the practicality of it. I know when there is will there is a way, but is it for me to study enough to get As or A*s
- A levels are always 'composite' - the exams for the full A level all have to take place in the same exam season (and there is no need to take AS exams at all.)
- There is only one opportunity to take exams in each year, in May/June. There is no Winter season.
i mean, nothing can really guarantee you getting As and A*s, you just gotta try your hardest and work smart. 3 a-levels in 1 year will be very intense, so you need to maintain a rigorous work ethic consistently. you're probably gonna struggle too as you have no prior knowledge of the subjects ie. you're not retaking but there are people who've done it so
