Dropped out in Year 9, nearly Year 11 and no GCSE's Watch

    I'm so stuck right now. I dropped out of school due to severe mental health issues and now I'm just stuck. Me and my mum accepted that I just cannot go back to a normal school but we have no idea what to do. She wants me to be homeschooled but how the hell am I supposed to get GCSE's doing that? I was looking to just do my GCSE's in college but all the college sites say that I have to have previous GCSE's (which I don't have).

    Am I just a lost cause like my dad thinks and should just give up, or what else do I do?

    But how do I do that? I'm so confused about everything I have no idea what to do.

    Maybe you can redo yr11. Some schools have GCSEs in one year.
    If you want to learn GCSE by yourself I think that's fine. You can enter the exams as private candidate.

    Can you cover content yourself?
    I had a friend in a similar situation as you. There are many things you could do, such as get tutors to come to you or study it yourself and sit it externally.

    Look around online. There are quite a few support networks of home-schoolers who will be able to help, e.g. http://www.home-education.org.uk/forums.htm
