    Hey everyone, so I'm 18 and finishing my Health and Social Care Extended Subsidiary Diploma Level 3 very soon. I really don't know why I chose to do Health and Social Care.. I mean I got fairly decent GCSE grades (10 GCSE passes mainly grade B and A) so I could've easily done an A-level course that I was interested in e.g. Biology chemistry and physics which I got a grade B in additional science. The course that I want to apply in university requires 3 A-Levels. So I was wondering if it's too late for me to do an A-Level course and would the colleges/sixth forms get me in? Would I need to pay since I would be turning 19 in A2?

    It's not too late to do A-Levels. Getting into a school for A-Levels would depend what the schools policy. You should contact all of the sixth forms that you're interested in and ask them if it is possible for you to sit A-Levels because no-one on this site can give you a definite answer.

    I've read stories of people starting their Medical careers (Starting their undergrad in Medicine) in their late 30s, some even in their 40s so you'll definitely be fine.

    Depends on the college maybe. A guy in my class is already 20 but he's doing A-Levels, his case is a bit different though as he just moved here a couple of years ago when he was 18 to do A-Levels.

    Yes you'd have to pay because you'll already have a level 3 qualification
