    Dude I was in the same boat as you and i did exactly same, IT and I am 19 aswell.
    I have enrolled my self in sixthfortm to do bio, chem, maths and history. I had D in my 3 science and english and explained to them i am going to retake my IGCSE science as private candidate in this May. Also, i will be sitting english in june because i did it in 2013 and the spec has changed. my advice would be go and talk to them. they have offered me conditional offer upon getting B or above in those sciences.
    To get you motivated i just booked my exam for May lastweek and starting prep. You will manage if you are motivated like me studying 8hrs.
