I only have 3 GCSE's but I need 4 to get into college? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Long story shot I failed my GCSE's. Well not technically I got 6 D's and 1 C (in fairness I'm really bad at exams) I'm currently resitting my Maths and English in igcse, but even if I get a C in Maths and English, the College course I want to apply for in September requires 4 GCSE's for C-A* I really don't want to have to go down to a level 2 course because then when I go to do level 3 I will have to pay for the course and my family don't have that kind of money. Does anyone have any advice?

    Can you not explain to them why you failed the 6 GCSE subject?

    Because if you pass Maths and English you'll have 3 GCSE's so...it's best to explain to them about that 1 GCSE.


    You do your science GCSE resit to gain you that extra 1 GCSE.
