    Hello people. I'm going to cut to the chase. I have always had a deep set interest in physics and maths. It's always been a secret dream to become Dr of physics.

    I'm 19.I did well in secondary school,got alot of gcses, the English here will know, and started doing A level maths, literature and ICT (my mum said no to physics because it's too geeky). Never got to the end of them because I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic lymphoma midway.

    Now, as you can imagine I have my priorities worked out. I will get a degree in physics.i don't doubt this. But im still on chemotherapy so I can't go back to school and the sciences are not really seen as a viable career or hobby to my parent's, although that does seem to be changing.

    So the question is, can you guys help?
    I want to get to a point where I can fly through the A Levels when comes a time I can do them.
    Where should I start? What should I read and which are the best text books?
