Starting college at 17 in September... (AS Maths) Watch

    I am starting college in September after having a year out and running my business (which was the priority). I changed my mind about Sixth Form before I started as I figured out I was exaggerating my abilities by attempting to study four A-levels.

    Am I too old to do A2 the year after?

    Maths is just some background study and I'll be attending college 4-6 hours a week. I got an A last year in GCSE Maths but I'm just a little rusty.

    Any advice/what to expect would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi, there. It's not too late to do A Levels. Just speak to your local college about it and they'll help you out.

    Of course you're not too old, people with September birthdays turn 17 within the first few weeks of starting A-levels.
