Would you guys say it could be done, to become an autodidact mathematician with the knowledge of a mathematical degree or higher? Obviously, it's not impossible, and it's not as easy as taking a degree in a university. But is it in the realms of a very motivated, 16 year-old. I have got no responsibilities other than learning, as I am homeschooled, but I teach myself. I am in a conundrum as far as sitting exams is concerned and I don't know if I would be able to get into a university. I am unable to sit physics exams for a-levels and GCSEs as it requires 'pratical work' and I am an external candidate. There is also other things holding me back. But the main question is, can I get to that level?
