    Hi there,

    my name's Joseph.
    I'm currently 17 (April 10th) and would just be finishing my year 12 (AS) exams, now if I was in sixth form.

    Due to personal reasons I dropped out at the start of year 12 and have just started an apprenticeship for business administration.

    I was wondering if it's possible to go back and do my AS/A2 levels after the apprenticeship, by which time I will be 18?

    Or, does anyone know if I can take my AS levels part time alongside my apprenticeship starting this september (academic year)? I would be interested in doing Maths/Further Maths, Economics and Statistics. This way I would only be a year behind when progressing with my A2s instead of 2 years.

    Another option I looked at was doing AS and A2s in a year after my apprenticeship but that seems way too stressful.

    Obviously it would depend on whether the sixth form college is up to it but I was wondering if anyone had experience or knew of cases similar to this.

    Thank you.

    I'm quite sure that you can do them at an older age, however I think after a certain age, the government will not fund your studies and so you may have to pay. You would have to check this though, as I think it may depend on where you want to study.
