how do sixth forms handle GCSE retake courses? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,

    I am an 18 year old wanting to go back to college, preferably the same sixth form college I dropped out of 2 years ago. First will sixth forms accept an older person like myself to apply (I'm 18 years old by the way)?

    Also, I want to learn computing as my main goal. But in order to take the computing course I require a B grade in mathematics and I only got a C grade at the time.

    So basically I want to go back to basics and retake a course for my maths GCSE with the college and hopefully get at least a B grade as I'm in a much more mature and better position in life now to actually attend the classes.

    So basically will most sixth forms accept me providing I've got the suitable grades for the courses, and will they let me retake my maths GCSE for a year, then start my a level courses afterwards (as I need a B first for the computing a level)?
