    Hi, I finished my GCSE's in June 2012 and I have got the following results:-
    Mathematics --- B
    Science ---- C
    Aditional Science ---- C
    English ---C
    History --- D
    Business and Comms --- C
    Physical Education ---- E

    Now since finishing school I have been working as a trainee and I am really unsure as to what I am good at or what I should do next. I would really like to go to university but I am not sure what I should do. I would really appreciate some suggestions please :confused:

    Thank you in advance

    Teaching can be difficult to gain admission to because they are very thorough with your GCSE results. I know when applying for Business courses they are only concerned with English / Maths, this doesn't apply with teaching.

    My advice would be do your A-Levels/BTEC at a college and consider resitting some GCSEs.

    I would take some evening classes or enroll at a local college. If you're taking some of the same subjects for A-level/btec you should resit some of you gcses
