    A level practicals are offered by 3A Tutors in Bristol. I took my son there a few years ago for some of his GCSEs, and can definitely recommend them.

    Yeah I think 3A Tutors were one of the very few places that offer the practical assessments. The thing is, not only were they too far for me to travel to, but they didn't offer the practicals for my chosen exam board (Edexcel). They suggested that I change to AQA but at the time it seemed like too much of a risky move considering the content between the two boards vary a fair bit and I had already learnt all of AS and most of A2

    Thanks anyway! Really appreciate the fact that someone has acknowledged the difficult position I'm in

    Just want to build a community of mature students who are studying A-levels. Anyone?

    State your age, what you were doing previously, and what A-levels you are studying
    Yeah, 2 years ago when i was 21 I started a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma. Finishing it now, my predicted grades are D*D*D but I'm hoping that I will get D*D*D*

    So all in all, went well. Had no problems with adjusting back to college life.

    That's fantastic! Are you thinking of going to University after your BTEC?

    Also have a look at this thread, there are plenty of other mature students there too!

    Thanks and thanks for the other thread, will defo look at that

    Yes I have a conditional offer by Liverpool, university of Liverpool. If I go to uni, I'm hoping I go there. But I'm also retaking my english language gcse. I'm praying for a C in that. If I don't get that, I can't go to Liverpool.

    What I'm hoping for mostly is that I will be eligible to join the army. My medical history's a bit :/ and I was rejected for it like 2 years ago. Don't know if I have any chance of getting in now. If I can, I want that more than uni.
