as i only did applied science at school i have to do 3 years at college to redo my 2 science GCSE's before starting the A-Levels i want to do, even though i got BC i have to retake it as applied science is coursework based, this means i will have to do 3 years at college.
my problem is before i started college i wanted to be an electrician and i did a course to get my qualifications for that, i didn't want to drop out so i completed the years course and finished once i had the qualifications, this means that i have technically been in college for 4 years and i will be 19/20 when applying for university.
Will this affect my chances of getting any offers or will the universities not take it into consideration as long as i get the grades?
thanks for any help x

People apply to university aged 50 and manage to get offers.
You're talking about applying when you're 2 years older than the typical applicant.
Will it make a difference to your application? No.
If you'd spent 4 years doing 3 A levels then yes, it would make a difference because it would have taken you twice as long as the average applicant but given you'll only have one set of A levels then this won't be an issue.
