I'm 19 years old in a few months, I left school after completing my GCSEs in 2013 with low grades. I achieved one C grade in Textiles, my Maths and English were D's and that's all I can really remember. Everything else was D or lower. And I think I got a distinction in BTEC ICT, they never provided me with those results but my expected grade was an A and I was getting only distinctions throughout my last two years of it.
I struggled a lot in school, I was bullied and have suffered with depression since I was 12 years old. And my anxiety holds me back a lot too, I haven't done anything since I left school, I tried to do sixth form but left after a few days because I couldn't cope. I was going to redo my maths and english GCSEs and was forced into doing a business BTEC course to make up for my lack of GCSEs.
Is there a way for me to redo my maths and english from home? The environment in education is what I can't deal with the most, and my anxiety stops me from leaving the house a lot. I go out maybe 2 or 3 times a month. I could attend my local college and do a Pre-Access course there but I think it would be a rerun of secondary school, where I just wouldn't go.

of course you can learn it at home and have tutors coming to help you, but the exams have to be taken at an exam centre, which is usually at a local school, though some will not take those who are not their students so you'll have to phone up the exam board to arrange this. im so sorry about what you had to go through at school :/ i hope your life is getting better!Last edited by ihatePE; 03-03-2016 at 17:21.
