    Hi everyone, i'm Anis.

    I'm 17, with only two GCSE's, they're in English and Maths, but they're the only ones i have.

    I want to do an academic course in College that gives him a chance of going to Uni, but I haven't got a clue what courses i'm able to take.

    Any advise will be much appreciated, I have less than 7 days until I have to enroll for something and i haven't got a clue what to do!

    Hey Anis, does the college not have some sort of advisor that could go into further detail with what would be best for you?

    I suggest you try to redo you GCSEs then think of doing A-levels or Btec after as getting to uni will be very hard with two GCSEs try to get at 3-5 at grade C as it is the minumum for many unis.

    Didn't they give a list of courses? What are you interested in doing and what type of a career are you looking to go into in the future?

    This

    With only 7 days to discuss and decide upon a course you would be happy with, you need to contact your student advisor A.S.A.P or you could try connexions

    Redoing them is not an option, i missed my original ones in year 11 due to illness and could only manage to retake English and Maths while a was recovering last year. They're both Bs but I don't have anything else.

    you could try a Btec level 2 then do a Level 3 which may lead you to uni. Also I would phone some colleges up and ask for advice and as you are under 18 the council should provide an advisor which could potenially help you out alot.
