    I don't know if this is much help, but what about night classes in GCSE? Or try your local careers centre, they might be able to help you or give you other options?

    Also some colleges I know let people in who don't have GCSE's, but have circumstances which prevented them from getting any. They do some access courses which is kind of a bridge to get you back into education.

    Good Luck hun and don't give up!

    For the two comments above mine, I must say, you are really helpful and funny. :rolleyes:

    Listen, smooie, some one who does computing and programming would find GCSE Maths a breeze! Don't worry about that aspect!

    How come you missed out on 2 years though? You will be able to go to college classes where you can do some gcse's for sure.. you may even be able to do them all in 1 year which woudl be good for you.

    Not necessarily, I've seen a few users around here that are good at computing but seem to have trouble with maths. Though on the whole, usually maths is instinctive for avid computerists and programmers.

    I have to say, you're going to have a hard time getting into college! I suggest you do what someone else prompted and take GCSE night classes and enter exams as a private candidate, then maybe when you're 18 you can enquire about a college... I also think with you lack of education, you'd be too overwhelmed with college, and may find it discouragingly hard. Good luck to you whatever you do, hope you sort something out.

    Never trust adverts! I don't think they'd be much help for your education. I agree that your simply going to have to push your education 2 years forward, and in the meantime take these night classes people are mentioning to get things back into gear

    ok ok ok on a serious note. Get metriculation out the way ie. maths english and science, maths and english more. When you have GCSEs in those you can progress from there. Thats all i have im afraid.

    Im sure the other esteemed members of TSR can help you betetr than I
