    Hi All,

    I'm looking to resit a science subject of some description, probably Physics.

    I'm now 42 years old and somehow managed to not get a science qualification when I left education, I don't remember missing any exams, but hey ho, I could do with the qualification now.

    So my question is, what are my options ?

    Many Thanks in Advance.

    The biggest employer in the area stipulates a science grade C or better in order to be considered for even basic jobs.

    Thanks

    In that case you should probably do GCSE Core Science rather than a GCSE each in the three sciences.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Would this be a year long course at a college or Adult education centre ?

    Depends on where you can do it really. Make some phone calls It would probably take less than a year on its own, you could also do GCSE Additional Science too if you have a year to do it and are willing to put in the work

    Thanks.

    I think my biggest problem is the time of year, or might there be some courses that start now, rather than run, Sept to june. ?

    Cheers

    I'm really not sure, I'd imagine not as you could potentially run out of time in the run up to the June exams.
