    Ive been studying at home towards my a levels for a few months, on the understanding that i would get funding to distance learn them. I have now been told i would have to find a college closer to do this, and am quite gutted. Does anyone know of anywhere i could flexi learn them from and it be government funded? I cant afford to pay for them myself and i really want to complete them this year.

    Thanks very much,

    Edit: I cant go back to college full time as my parents arent willing to support me and EMA isnt enough to cover the cost of getting to nearby colleges let alone books or food. I am 18. I have emailed colleges around me but they have all said they dont offer distance learning.

    Enrol in a college/sixth form, and say you want to study your courses through distance learning. Maybe.
