My school doesn't offer an a-level I really want to do (classics), and no other local schools do either. Is it worth trying to do it independently? Can any independent students please explain what the process is like? And anyone who has done classics comment on whether it is worth it?

its not worth doing independently unless you really think you've got the dedication and motivation to teach yourself what a trained teacher ought to be doing

classics is something you can casually get into yourself though since its topics are the topic of many literature and documentation - books, videos etc

What would you do instead, and would not doing it have an impact on the degrees you could go on to study?

I had a conversation with my teacher and he offered to help me do an EPQ on classics, so now I think I'm okay. I've always entertained on doing a joint history and classics degree, but since i've had virtually no experience with doing classics ever, I have no idea how it would go if that makes sense?

That sounds like a good plan; you can also go to uni open days and taster sessions to see if that would be the degree for you Not committing to an extra A level you don’t need is sensible and you can definitely research Classics in your spare time - lots of people study a subject for the first time at uni!

You could do that.

My son is currently studying History and Ancient History at Exeter without having an A level in Ancient History (or even History, weirdly)
