    u need to like try and get some international qualification or if u have one already go to sixth forms and call them and ask them if u can come in and discuss having a place. If u r european u shuld be gud tho or summin coz the secondary qualifications are standardised by the EU.
    If not call schools etc and ask them for guidance. explain ur prediciment first in an email and arrange a phone call, be professional

    Welcome to the UK
    I guess what you can do is go to a college and ask if you can take GCSE maths and English; as those are the key ones. At that same college explain you situation to them and ask them what your options are and I'm sure they'd be able to help you.
    Good luck!

    I think you would be in year 11, if you were 16 on the 3rd of September this year, so should be in the last year of GCSEs courses. Phone up (or ask a carer to phone) your local education authority and tell them your date of birth (to make sure you should be in year 11) and ask them to help you find a school. They should be able to tell you which local authority schools have places and how to apply. They should also be able to tell you about academies near you. These are state schools but they organise their own admissions and might not be able to give you a place.

    If you don't know which is your local authority let us know roughly where you live (just the name of the town, no more details on -line) and someone may know who to contact.
