Just to check I understand your post, you haven't started studying 3 A levels yet but you want to take the exams in Summer 2022?

There won't be any funding given your age and the fact that you've already studied Level 3 qualifications. Some people dos just teach them selves and not pay for an online provider which would save a fair bit of money. The exam fees are not included in online course fees anyway (expect tp pay around £250 per A level in exam fees).

At the moment exams are still meant to be going ahead for everyone in Summer 2022. There in info f5or private candidates here: https://www.gov.uk/government/public...ate-candidates
Yes, I will either be doing the exams in June 2022 or 2023. I know I could go back to college with an advanced learner loan, but I'd have to be there for 2 years, which feels like too long for me. Is it possible to self study these subjects? I've done psychology before so I'm fairly confident I can manage it, and I'm sure Sociology is fairly similar but I don't know about the other since it's essay based.

Okay umm.. My statement of entry shows that my Further Maths and Decision Maths is IAL unit type... But I would like to cash in it as IAS Further Maths. Would this be a problem if I have to cash it in?

You can only cash-in a qualification when you have entered for all the units for it but if the units you are taking are an allowable combination for AS FM then you should be fine.

The flexibility that was lost when they changed England A-levels to a linear structure. However, this change reduced the amount of resits.

Do you think universities might lower their offers as a result of seeing candidates do their exams privately (self-taught) rather than through a school?

It can help me decide whether I should just self-teach myself A-levels quicker than going to a sixth form.

Sure, but people no longer re-sitting early units 4 times (as used to happen when the UK had 2 exam seasons a year) has to be a good thing. There was a GCSE science spec with 8 units per GCSE and 3 chances to take the exams annually. As quite a few students started in Year 9 they could - and did attempt some units up to 9 times. As one student said 'It's mutli-guess miss. I'm bound to strike lucky eventually'.

Hey guys! If you feel like exams should be cancelled for 2022 plz sign the petition Due to the lack of support from online learning during the closure of all schools in the UK, many students don't have sufficient education to undertake these exams without severe psychological distress. In addition to this, the majority of educational establishments in the UK didn't have the capacity needs to supply education from a remote learning environment. The overall causality will be a huge amount of failing students who will not be able to apply to university or find a proper career.

here is the link: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/597282

Hi, my name's Tom and I am doing Business independently in my gap year.

I was looking through the specification and realised that there is pre-released material for paper 3 every year. I can't access this as I dont have a teacher and you need a teacher's pearson account to open the PDF of the material and some of the past papers. I was just wondering if anyone could provide the pre-released paper 3 content or give suggestions as to how I can access the materials that are padlocked on pearson.
