    Your options depend a lot on why you were dismissed and what relationship (if any) you still have with the college. Will they permit any further contact with them? Will they allow you to sit your exams there and finish off any coursework even though you are excluded from lessons?

    If not then you have a challenge.

    You should try to find an alternative college that will let you continue some or all of your subjects.
    Or
    You can try and study by yourself and find somewhere to take some of the exams as a private candidate (you will have to pay and it will be expensive to do a lot of them this way). Subjects that include any coursework, controlled assessments or assessed practicals are very difficult for private candidates to complete.
