    Hi =)

    I'd like to ask if what you guys feel it would be like to study 6 GCSE subjects including
    - Geography
    - English
    - Psychology
    - Business Studies
    - Mathematics
    - Sociology
    - Spanish

    I'd like to study, here in London therefore I still must find a college. I would greatly appreciate an in-depth answer. I will also need to be working to support myself, I live independently. I calculate I'll be working around 20 hours a week. The reason I may/may not include Spanish simply to be able to focus on the other subjects but I'm passionate about learning Spanish & living the Barcelona life one day!

    What do you think? Is it possible?
    - I consider myself organised & well, I believe I can put the dedication into it.


    Gracias!

    Yes obviously, and just remember not to overwork yourself instead focus mainly in your studies.

    Good luck!

    I doubt you will find a college willing to teach you 6 or 7 GCSE over a half year period unless you approach one of the expensive private tutorial colleges that are more flexible in what they will do. A normal college would only take you in September to take the exams in the following summer and may not offer all of your choices at GCSE level.
    Whether you could learn it all in a year or more quickly in some other way and still pass with good grades will depend upon your prior knowledge, ability and effort.

    Ah ok sorry I misunderstood, then that would be very achievable. As you are older than 16 the only challenge is finding a college that will teach those subjects to older students. The assumption is that you do GCSE at school aged 14-16. Colleges concentrate on what you do next. For those with adequate GCSE results that would be A level or level 3 BTEC. For those who didn't do well, they tend to offer a limited selection of GCSE and then a range of level 2 BTEC qualifications. There are lots of colleges in London so hopefully you can find one suited to your goals. Whether there will be any cost depends on several factors including your age and employment status.
