A Sheffield student who achieved top grades says home education can work right up to A level.
Very few home-educated pupils continue to learn in this way past GCSEs.
But Eli Ingle, 19, achieved two A stars - in business studies and sociology - and has now found out he has an A in psychology.
He said he thought about going back to college for A-levels but he and his family had enjoyed his home education so much he wanted to carry on.
Mr Ingle, who is the grandson of well-known Sheffield boxing trainer Brendan Ingle, has been educated at home since the age of 13. His sister Niamh, 17, who has also been home-educated, got an A in sociology and a B in psychology.
