    I have wasted many years in a dead end job and want a change. I have been looking at starting an AAT course but worry I have left it too late.

    What I am considering is doing level 1 and level 2 on a distance learning course online, and then going to college to do level 3 next September. I have checked my local college and they do level 3. Would my local college accept me for level 3 if I pass level 1 and 2 online? I am concerned they may not because I mucked my GCSEs up when I was younger, and the only qualifications I have are a French GCSE and a GNVQ in Leisure and Tourism.

    Thanks for reading.

    I'm sure they would, but why not just ring them up and ask them directly?
