I am currently 18 (August). Last year I started A-Levels but did not like the school I was in so I decided to change to go to a local FE College. Then at the beginning of this year changed my course to do IT. I am now really regretting staying on in the FE College and want to go back to do A-Levels... Would it be too late to start now? (November), Would it be better to wait a year?, Will I be paying for it considering I am now older than 18?
I am mainly concerned with the fact I am not doing any exams due to it being a BTEC, and it means I will be out of pattern when doing exams in University. Although I do not wish to attend a Upper Class University, I want to gain a qualification which is greatly recognised as well as appreciated and not seen as inferior to A-Levels. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. -J

I'm 25 and going back to college to study a-levels, so no, you're not too old!
You'll probably have to wait until next year's enrollment now as we're quite far in to the first term, but you could speak to admissions at the college to check.
Level 3 qualifications are funded until you're 24, so you won't have to pay anything.
