    I want to finish all my GCSEs really early, maybe at the start of year 11, and start attending an international school overseas preferably in South Korea or Japan. Is it possible to do that? If there are any organisations that allow students my age finish school earlier, please let me know ASAP. Thank you very much.

    By the way I am 15 years old, living in the UK.

    don't know anything about studying abroad but when you say finish by the end of year 11, do you mean studying or taking the exams as well? since most subjects only have a summer examination season (apart from maths/english but i think that's resit only)

    it's easy enough to teach yourself most GCSEs but you'd still need to do controlled assessments so i suggest researching your options and see if you can do sixth form abroad, that way you still get your GCSEs at the normal time

    edit: just remembered that in japan, they start the school year in april so that'd be a problem in terms of exams (which start in may) but not sure if it's the same with international schools

    i want to finish my GCSEs at the start of year 11 (September till October), then complete all the paper work and accommodations needed for me to live and study in South Korea or Japan.

    i know for a fact that South Korea's schools start in March, and you told me in Japan it starts in April therefore it gives me enough time to settle down and get admitted in an international boarding high school.

    But I don't know how I am supposed to quickly finish all my exams. Do you guys know any organisations that allow students like me to complete my GCSEs early?
