self studying A levels

hello! i was just wondering if anyone’s ever self-studied A levels before? i’m a year 11 student and i’m thinking about self-studying maths as i’ve already used up my fourth A-level slot. If you’ve self studied an A level, may also i have some tips?
Heya! I mean I take Maths A level, and I would not really suggest doing it as a self study, because if you get stuck it's pretty hard to get out of it on your own. At least possibly have a tutor, or someone who you know who could answer a question every week or so, or be very prepared beforehand with lots of useful websites and yt channels which can help. I currently have a friend who's going to self study Further Maths, but they haven't started yet and were supposed to back in December!! May I ask what other A levels you're thinking of taking?

I self studied (well obviously using the internet and the many wonderful resources on it) 4 A Levels. Very much doable but you need to be motivated and not slack.
