Personal accounts: home ed and academic success

While academic success should not be the only measure of a successful education it is useful to understand that home education is certainly no barrier and that numbers of young people attain places in some of the most prestigious universities in the country. 

A project to help dispel myths around home education gathered some of these personal accounts. This has been part of work fighting for home educated young people to be given fair access to exams.
