    I don't think any course's take 1 A-level, you might want to take a gap year and get some real qualifications. Also you may want to look into an apprenticeship , not that you may like it.

    I know all courses need higher grades, but there must be some, very few of them, that would accepted those. I have found one, "Educational Support" at University of the west of England (Briston), course code X190. Does anyone know others?

    The minimum national requirement for entry into a standard undergraduate degree course is two A levels or equivalent qualifications at the same level. In your case, there may be some foundation courses you could apply for, but you will have to search for them using the UCAS course search engine, and your choices will be extremely limited. Many universities also expect C grades in English and Maths as a minimum.

    You might like to check whether you are eligible for an Access course; otherwise you need to resit those GCSEs to improve the grades and consider adding to your A levels.

    With grades like these are you sure that further education is for you?
    In a polite way - your grades are very poor. Most people as for a Grade C or above in Maths and English.

    I personally think that CCC is too low for university let alone one E.

    I think that for you university would be a huge waste of an investment.

    What is it that you want to do?
    Most people take at minimum of three A-levels in subjects that they are interested in and then choose a university course form there.
    Why don't you decide what you what to study and then do the relevant A-levels. If you're working form home as a private candidate, you can do two years worth of study in just the one year. So I suggest you take some time to think about what you want to do, and take some more A-levels. Don't just go to University for the sake of it, you'll regret it in the end.

    Any course? :confused:
    you're willing to pay 9 grand a year or whatever, to study any course at any university? Seriously, don't do it.
    Find out what it is you want to do, then look at what you need to do to get there, you're probably going to have to resit.
    You don't seem stupid, maybe exams just aren't your thing, look into doing a btech or something?

    Go sit a BTEC engineering course then go do a-level maths. Then tell me if you’re able to repeat that statement with any validity.

    To the original poster. I think the only real option for you is to head back to college. You need a solid level 3 foundation, be that A-Level, BTEC or otherwise.

    If aiming for a vocational course many colleges offer foundation years for people in your position.
