Not sure what I want to do at uni, but I certainly want to study something science based.
I was considering taking Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology with the intention droping bio at AS.
I will be teaching myself as I am older (not old old) lol.
I am a bit worried about not having the opportunity to learn any practical skills. I mean the lung dissection is easy enough to do at home but some of the others require specialist equipment. Would this greatly impact on my ability to complete the course? I am considering applying for a job as a laboratory technician.

What are the best science A-Level resources that you have come across?
For GCSE I used Science with Hazel's perfect answer revison guide. Has anyone found any similar reasourses for A-level?

In your opinion, which exam board has the best available resources?

Hello fellow Hobbit,

For the practical element, would you have the option of attending a local college in order to study your curriculum? I think you'd be far better off with a tutor and the possibility for practicals (ESPECIALLY in chemistry!). Not only are they important for understanding but they're also good fun!

Khan Academy is an EXCELLENT resource for A-Level Science and Maths. Very clear and logical thought processes.

Best of luck,

Aaron

No, my local college doesn't offer any courses for over 18s that would be of any interest. They only offer trade based courses and access to HE (health care professionals or humanities).
I will look in to possibly getting a chemistry tutor.
Is read somewhere that Khan academy uses different vocabulary, but I will have have a look.
Thank you

A youtube channel "physics online" has helpful videos and for past paper practice a channel called "natural science solutions" is great
For all sciences and math révision à channel "snap revise" explains concepts very well and accommodate most of the board edexcel and aqa for sure

Are AS levels an option any more?
Thought you just did the full a-levels now rather than AS's.
