    Hi!

    Sorry to hear about your situation, but good on you for making a move to back into education
    Do you have any ideas about what you might want to do? What interests you?

    Try calling some colleges to explain your circumstances and see if you'd be able to sit your GCSEs before doing or even alongside some A levels. Just explain the circumstances and ask what your options are.
    You might also want to think about sitting your GCSEs as a private candidate - you'd just need to find an exam centre to except you..

    You could also consider doing IGCSEs (also as an external candidate) but as far as I'm aware these aren't offered at state schools and you'd have to find a private school to be the exam centre.

    As an alternative to GCSEs, you could think about going the entry level qualification route.

    I know it's not much, but I hope some of the info here has been useful! I wish you all the best!
