    Hey,
    How difficult will it be for a mature student to do study for two A level science subject in one year??. With economics* (I done it before) Is it possible to get ABC or BBC. I’m considering of studying it at a special college course for mature student...so is it possible to study it in one year and to get the grades?? i never studied A level biology or chemistry before

    It's alright if you actually put in effort, I did chemistry in a single year although I'm not a mature student but I had to balance that single year of chemistry along with Biology, Maths and English so 2 sciences shouldn't be extremely difficult.

    My mother took 3 or 4 in a year at around the age of 28 or so, in the form of evening classes. She got AAB, I think... (law, psychology, sociology)

    You should be able to. You can always enrol on them and see how you are progressing. If you are uncertain, it might be best to reduce the number you wish to take or take them over two years. Usually, this is the pattern that is followed in most schools and colleges. Most students take 4 AS levels and 3 A-elvels, but obviously you are not bound by any restrictions.
