It's been 11 years since I studied maths at all (GCSE Level). I found it really easy, didn't put much effort in and got a B.
Now I am 27 and really want to go to a good university! I was just wondering whether I am technically 'ready' to start A-Level Maths...I haven't got the faintest idea what trigonometry is.
However I will be paying good money to a good college to learn the stuff.
Will I be able to learn the stuff as I go along or do I need a good grounding in the subject?
Any comments appreciated!

You do not need to spend any money in terms of actually learning the subject. Save your money and use it to only pay for the exams. Here are the steps I recommend:
1) Sign up to Khan Academy and complete the Fundamentals and High School and Beyond sections.
Once done you are ready to learn A-Level Mathematics
2) Decide what exam board you want to study for (I am with Edexcel) and use ExamSolutions, M4ths.com and HegartMaths as well as the textbooks to study and practice A-Level Mathematics.
3) Find a college where you can sit your exams.
4) Sit exams

Na you should be all right. Not a lot from GCSE is needed if I remember rightly.
