    First post here, be gentle

    To sum it up during GCSE days I really didn't pay attention to english I found it extremely boring and had the attitude of "hey I can speak it, I can write - what use is this shakespeare guy"

    Any who after getting D/D for English it has always been on my mind...

    I took an in-house exam at university for English because they wanted to know if I could understand it after my grades were so shabby but even after getting my degree 2 years ago (I'm 24 years old now) I still want to do this GCSE English... One of those things to prove to myself.

    How do I go about getting into this? Thanks in advance :rolleyes:

    I can sympathise, I too didn't pay attention in class at secondary school even though I enjoyed the subject.
    I decided to change my career back in 2012 and enquired about an access course. I found out that they had changed the previous entry requirements which meant I needed a C in english (I knew I had a D). So paid for distance learning from ICS to study English language at IGCSE. Obviously I had to pay for an exam as a private candidate but that was £90 and it was worth it.

    You could do it as an evening course I guess?
