3 or 2 A-level intensives? Are intensive A-levels difficult?

Hi,

I tried to go private but my grades got locked because I couldn't afford to continue.

Now I have the option to do intensive A-levels.
Has anyone done intensive A-levels before? Is it difficult? Is 3 too many?

I did something similar, many IAL Edexcel modules in 2022 and then some in 2023 (plus some retakes). I'm finishing my A-levels a year early, hopefully straight A*/A (but if not, at least I know I'm an A*/A student even if not by exams). Therefore I did many IAL modules 2 years early

You need a lot of organisation, time management etc. and a plan (so start thinking now). I didn't have this, and it may cost me straight A*/A grades at a level (but i am not retaking, i'm going to uni at 16)

You need support. If you try that self taught it's probably not going to go well. Get the support you can, especially predicted grades and references.

good luck!
