If you’re thinking of studying either A-Levels or GCSEs, you may be wondering when you can start studying for them. Many people believe that you can only start studying towards either type of qualification in September at the start of the traditional academic year, but this isn’t the case at all.
When studying with an online college (like Open College), you are actually free to enrol and start studying right away. You don’t need to worry about term times or wait for the academic year to start, you can instead get going as soon as you want.
Why Should I Start Studying A-Levels or GCSEs now?
The main reason to get going with your studying is time. The sooner you start, the sooner you will have worked your way through the course syllabus and have your head in the right place for the examinations.
To give you an idea, the average A-Level takes a student 350 hours of study. So if you wanted to cover an A-Level on one year instead of two, then if you were to start studying the course in March or April, you would have plenty of time to complete the entire course and start revising before the examination period in the following year.
