Don't think so, I think I remember reading that David Cameron took an Economics A-level to make the press happy, and there are plenty of adults who take them. There's also a guy from the US in my year who will be 19 when he takes his A2's.

You can take them at any age, although funding can be an issue if you already have Level 3 qualifications.

What's Level 3 Qualifications?
It covers most things that are above GCSE level, but below uni (HNC / HND / Degree) level. Examples include A Levels and BTEC National Diploma Level 3.

In essence, you'll have to speak to your college about funding if you already have qualifications that are above GCSE level.

There is no age limit to pass A level exams. I've seen an external/private candidate sitting exams, she must have been in her 60s. Never "too old" or too late to learn

If you were under the age of 19 when you started A-Levels then you should normally be funded = the school / college will pay for your exams.

If you had been over 19 when you started A-Levels you might have had to pay for exam entries yourself (depends a bit on circumstances / school / college).

I'm in a situation where, if I don't get into uni this year I want to try again this year. I'd like to take an AS and A2 at the same time to get the full A level in one year. How does this work? Who do I talk to and what steps do I take?

Talk to your school or college, have them enter you for all the exams and go to all the lessons.

You'll be able to do it but you might have to pay. but maybe not if you haven't already got a-levels or equivilent. That's why people can only do three years of 6th form as by the 4th they'd be over 19 and either have some (poor) a-levels or if they'd failed 3 times, the 6th form is unlikely to want them back again.

There arent any. You may need to have the GCSE at a certain grade before some schools will let you enrol.
