    I am currently trying enrolling into college A-Levels Maths, Physics, Chemistry. Due to my personal circumstances I came to this decision late, but I am willing to work hard and catch up. It has been 5 years since I have done my GCSEs, I got average scores of BBBBBCC.

    I went to enroll today but they have asked me to take a test tomorrow. I forgot to ask for more details.

    I am frantically trying to learn GCSE physics, maths and chemistry from scratch. It suddenly hit me, the realization of the huge task. I am sinking as much time as possible to absorb and refresh my mind but I only have 12 hours left.

    When I do take it and fail will they deny my application?

    Should I give up on this college?

    On another note would I have to pay fees for A levels since I am 21 years old? This will be my first Level 3 course.

    Hello, I am personally taking Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry as my A Level subjects - they are indeed very tough and three of the top facilitating subjects that the Russell Group universities want to see. Thus, good choice.

    Frankly speaking, it is possible to revise a few GCSE subjects within 12 hours but you would really have to focus and cram constantly. You should probably never give up on this college, albeit it is a crucial fact to know that there are many more sixth forms out there, that may be better.

    Moreover, your GCSE grades are more important than the result you get in a unofficial test organized by your sixth form - so don't worry too much.
