My friend recently told me that regardless of studying 2 GCSE's at our Secondary School he managed to study some others in a community College, I'm wondering whether I could possibly do the same thing since I will admit I am nearing my GCSE's as I am in Year 11 at the moment and in 4-5 months I will be doing them, but I'd like to take some additional's for afterwards as I believe that if I manage to get into French, business and Sociology I could achieve positive grades that would aid me in applying for my A-Level government politic courses.
Wanting to try additional GCSE's outside of School. Watch

It's probably too late - you need to have started them at the start of Year 10 or soon after. The entry deadline is half term of this term. Business and French have controlled assessment that has to be completed and this is next to impossible if you're not being taught a class.

Imo, it won't make the slightest bit of difference. you'll get on the A-levels you want if you have As in the GCSEs you're currently doing.
Doing extra GCSEs, unless there is a compelling reason (for example you want to eventually read Classics, but there is no Latin or Greek at your school) is nothing more than a distraction based either on misinformation, or vanity.
