Hiya, I’m currently trying to self study 3 A Levels this year, so I can go to uni in September. I’ll need BCC, and the course I want to do is Economics and Politics.

I’ve already decided on Maths and Politics, but am not sure on my third. I’d prefer to do French as its something I enjoy and am good at, but other possibilities would be Psychology or Economics.

Anyone have any suggestions/ways to self study? I only need a C, as I’m confident I can get at least an A in Maths. And is it actually possible to self study French? Is there coursework etc?

Hellooo!!

I am homeschooled but I hope I can be of some use!
To be honest, I don't think Psychology could be of much use in your degree and I suggest you go for an easier (content-wise) and enjoyable option. I am doing French A-Levels this year and (without being too biased) would recommend you do French!

I assume you would have already done so at GCSEs. The content doesn't seem to be very different, you just have to adapt to the up-leveled grammar. I recommend you buy a grammar book and check out many YouTube videos! Use www.languagesonline.org for help.
The only trouble is that there is a speaking component, so make sure you have someone to practice with and, of course, a centre that will take you in as an external candidate.

In the year 13 exams you have a literature component (which differs from one exam board to the other). It's only a matter of if you can get access to the pieces of literature they ask (sometimes they ask for movies which you could find most of on YouTube). But please don't be discouraged! It will be so much fun!!

Best of luck!!!

that’s great, tysm for your reply! I did French at GCSE and got a 7 even though I didn’t do my speaking exam due to a panic attack ahaha, so I think I’ll find it alright.

Good luck yourself though, am sure we’ll both do amazing!!
