    Talk to a careers adviser, better still go and see a local one. the contact deatails are on the link. I wasnt havng much luck with Newcastle College and A levels for adults are harder to find than BTEC or Access courses.

    The careers adviser should know, alternatively you might have to travel to one of the neighbouring cities or do it via distance learning.

    I don't think online courses will help me as well as one to one lessons but thanks for your advice.

    Newcastle appears to have only one college, so it doesnt look like you can do them. No idea if there are private colleges but you would be paying thousands.

    Your options are:

    1. Teach yourself. You should contact the exam board and identify any exam centres. I cant remember what A levels you wanted, but sciences need lab time.

    2. Distance learning.

    3. Search furtherafield. I have e-mails Sunderland (dont think so) and Middlesborough.

    4. If you are trying to get into Uni, then an access course might be your only choice.
