Hi all, new to this so go easy. I've been doing some research and I'm struggling to work out what would be the right level for me to re-train at. I did my GCSEs in 98 and got a B in Maths and a C in Physics. I went on to do Psychology, Business and Sport at A-Level and got a degree in Sports Studies. I'd like to get back in to studying, starting with Maths and moving in to Physics with a view to doing a distance learning course in Physics in the future. I'm open to starting from the beginning but don't know if GCSE is a bit too early. I've looked at some courses and the early parts of GCSE look too easy but diving straight in at A-Level/AS Level seems a bit daunting. Does anyone know of any bridge courses out there where I could revisit some GCSE topics with a view to developing in to more challenging topics?
Thanks very much!

Just wanted to say thanks for joining The Student Room: welcome on board!

How's it going so far? Found what you need? Below I've listed a few things you might fancy trying on TSR. If you've got any questions, add them to the TSR news, help and feedback forum.

Put your work head on:
No matter what level or subject you're studying, you'll find someone on TSR who can help. Find your subject in the Study Help forum and ask a question or visit our brilliant revision section for help and advice. And if you're planning on going to university, you have to visit our uni applications forum. It's full of people who can help you through the whole process.

Take it easy:
You know there's more to TSR than studying, right? In Hobbies and Interests you'll find people talking about everything from the latest football scores through to what mobile phone to buy next. Or how about the Debate and Current Affairs forum? Latest news, politics, education...it's all fair game in here.

That's just a taster, of course. To find even more conversation, head to the Forums page and find a place to start up your own discussion.

Enjoy the site!

Ollie, from the TSR community team
