so how do you keep up with the curriculum and stuff - what do you do about exams? how much work do/did you do a day?
heehee lots of questions
feel free not to answer them
Keep up with the curriculum... no idea.
Exams... some centres will take private candidates, but you have to find such a centre, and pay the exam fees... and there's the coursework as well. A right pain that is.
That was done several times for older siblings, but when it came to me we had disovered the "Learn At Home" courses with a college not too far away. The main part of the work was done at home, and contact with tutors by phone/mail/email. I'd have to go in to the college probably once or twice a week for tutorials, and for exams.
As a student with the college, exam entry and coursework were not a problem.
Surely you missed out on a social life at the time which is pretty important at that age?
Yeah, OK, maybe I did. But not all because of being educated at home, PM me Mark, and I'll explain some of it further.
I don't understand home schooling- do the parents do the teaching or does someone qualified come round to teach you daily?
In my case it was the parents, and my dad was someone qualified, he used to be a teacher. How others do it I don't know.
