    Many access courses will allow you to do the gcse's or a qualification to the same level alongside your course. Ask the college you want to study at.

    Happy Holidays is right, in our college we have 2 groups doing the access course, group 1 are also doing their GCSE's alongside it, it is do able and a fantastic course, but it is very demanding and fast paced but so worthwhile, let us know how you get on

    You will need to speak to the universities that you intend on applying to. If it is maths and english you are lacking, most are fine for you to study the equivalents alongside your Access course.

    im not sure about other places but I completed the access course last year and finished with 19 distinctions. alongside it, the college stipulated that I needed to complete the gcse maths and English to gain grade c's (that's at stoke on trent). I had English already but not maths and because I hadn't previously got a C in maths then I got the course for free. I got my results in august and gained appropriate grades for me to get three offers from universities. hope this helps..... good luck
