DD(16) is at a school where for various reason she cannot study History at A level. She is doing GCSE (and is predicted an A). The local college cannot help either.
Does anyone know of an OU style A level that she could study in her own time? I have seen some advertised but the reviews are mixed and coursework/exams etc seem to present huge problems.
Thanks in advance.

No. Would you consider doing a Scottish higher -equivalent to AS in one year then following it with Scottish Advanced Higher History, which is equivalent to A2 History?

The SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) has a website.

You can through this place:
I've not used it but it looks like what you are looking for. You have to register for exams yourself from what I understand.

What about Interhigh? Don't know how their fee structure works for A levels

I don't know, but I'm sure you'll get good advice from someone on the busy home ed email list which is linked from this page: , either about how to do it or alternative qualifications. The list is for young people who want to do qualifications from home.
