    Considering how much your English sucks I doubt you'll do well in A levels unless you're only doing maths and stuff like that.

    You don't generally need to pay unless you're over 20 and it's not your first course of that level. So it should be free but you need to check with the college specifically

    I'm From the Latvia and here is much different education system than in England
    Most of people here in Latvia finish Secondary school (GCSE) which twenty one age
    And here in school time its hard to learn english grammar or talking english, because Latvian education system sucks. Teachers does not teach English language sufficiently good level.
    Ignore the idiot above. What a levels are you considering to study? If I were you I'd consider sciences and maths as your English may cause you too underperform in essay based exams. Also I'm sure if you contact Sandwell they would invite you too the college too consider your options!

    No she won't be eligible for funding that's what happened to my friend. Me and her both came from Italy but when she was starting A Levels in September she was 19 while I was about to turn 18. She did not receive funding and she had to pay £1000 for all her subjects. The school decided to take £1000 off so she paid £3000 and she will have to do the same this year as well

    I'm sorry but what kind of bs is that? I'm from Lithuania and I just looked it up to make sure but you start 1st grade at around 7 years old? There are 12 grades. GCSE equivalent is 10th grade. A levels are the 11th and 12th grade. Unless you're really bad in school you should be finishing your GCSE's equivalent at around 16-17 and all 12 grades at 18-19.

    So I would assume you have just finished school and would be going to university not doing A levels.

    If you're going to say you just finished GCSE's that means you're saying you're in UK and have been doing GCSE's. In which case your English skills are atrocious. You should've said GCSE's equivalent in Latvia which would mean that yeah you're in a different country so your English skills are crap but okay.

    May I ask you how long have you been living in England?
    I say In the Latvia most poeple get GCSE around 20-21 year old.and there is much different education system than in UK. When I will finish GCSE in latvia I will start do A-levels at 19. I want do A-levels because I want get futher education which mean I want start study at University. Anyway I have still one year to improve my english skills. So you say that people in England finish their A-levels at 19 or even 18?

    Bout 3-4 years. People start uni at 18 in UK usually. Same as Lithuania, Netherlands, USA. Most countries you start uni before 20 as long as you don't take breaks in between your education.

    So yeah, most people are done with GCSE's around 16 and with A levels at 18 and continue on to university.

    There will be a few older people also doing A levels so you should be fine. And generally A levels are 2 years but if you do badly you can take another year to revise and retake your exams

    It's based on what age you start the course, not how old you become during it. So you shouldn't have to pay at all
