A levels as an adult/mature student?

Has anyone retaken or gone back to do A levels as an adult?
I have some unfinished business with A level maths from about 15 years ago. I didn't work hard enough as a 16 year old and want to prove to myself that I can do it.

If you did them as an evening class approx how much did they cost, or if you did them via distance learning who did you use?

I can't find anything about costs on the local college websites as they all mention funding/loans. I don't think id be able to use this as I have a degree and I'm only doing it for 'fun'.

You're correct that you won't get funding for it - you'll fall under the ELQ rules, I'm afraid.

I'd suggest ringing up your local college to ask about the fees.

Did you look into this further, gindrinker? I would like to do the same thing. I can't find an evening class so wondering about distance learning but not sure who is good.

I have recently taken two A'Levels with Learn Now Distance Learning College. They have allowed me to pay for my A'Levels on instalments. Website is

I failed a level geography but did it again in my late 20s and got an A smile
Had to pay off it though and that was a few years back now.
