I was in a college doing my A Levels for 2 years, but I ended up needing to resit because of the whole CAGs mess, so while resitting I'm a private candidate.
From experience in both, I personally found that it is so much better in a college/ school.
One of the biggest problems I'm facing studying privately is that I'm at my house all the time, so I don't have a proper study environment, so it's reallyyy hard to get into that study mood and it's easy to slack.
Also, in college, I was always able to get help whenever I was stuck but now I have to wait for my private tuition lessons to ask for help which wastes a lot of time- and tuition is expensive! Meaning I still have to work so that I can afford to pay for my private exams and lessons and this makes balancing work, study and me-time even more difficult.
Hope that helps (:
