Hello all,

Now I had graduated from high school, and I'd like to self-study (revisiting) high school mathematics and physics (not for exam).

But recently I often saw ads for a local online course platform. Many of the platform's users have been admitted to top colleges, and get better score marks in exams. However, after consulting with my family, I couldn't afford for enroll to it, despite that the platform often gave discount promos (which might make it affordable to me and my family).

What should I do in that case? How can I keep up with online course users without enroll to it (the platform)?

Bagas

You led off with, "... I'd like to self-study (revisiting) high school mathematics and physics (not for exam). " So why are you concerned with, "How can I keep up with online course users without enroll to it (the platform)? "?

Students I've mentored have found the ALEKS online program to be very good and cost-effective.

Basically, if you complete 95-100% of the Precalculus pie, you have mastered high school math.

The ALEKS system is smart, it knows how to determine and keep you focused on weak areas rather than lots of redundant practice in areas you are already good at.

Hi there. I know from a previous thread that you are from Indonesia and had previously been a high school student. Are you ultimately planning on attending university? Or are you unable to attend because you (or your family) cannot afford to do so?

It helps if you could provide more information.

Not Yet.

I don't enroll to anything because (unfortunately) my family cannot afford them.

I see. Are there any options for you to be able to pursue a university education in Indonesia, given that your family cannot afford them (scholarships, student grants, loans)?

Given what I know about Indonesia (more broadly, much of Southeast Asia), without a university education, your options for employment are very limited and often quite grim.

There is used having scholarship offer, but I rejected it because the amount was too small for enrollment and semesterly tuitons.
