What happens if I don't get enough GCSEs for sixth form entry requirements? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I already have two GCSEs but I only did my core subjects this year due to personal circumstances.
    However, I don't think I'll pass science, leaving me a GCSE short of the five I need. What happens then? Can I still get into sixth form?

    I've found that most schools are willing to negotiate (mine was at least with some people who missed the requirements). You said personal circumstances so if you've been in the school for a while and everyone there knows you well I'm willing to bet they might offer some support. You'll have to talk to the school/college you're attending I'm afraid
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
