    I'm 19 years old and the highest level of education I have is a level 2. I went to college to get my level 3 but I dropped out as I genuinely didn't like the course and I didn't want to be in college for 2 years. I would like to go to university but I just don't think anyone would take me seriously I've recently figured out what it is I want to study education studies/Childhood but I really don't know how to get on to courses like that or even know if I'm eligible.

    You would need to do a level 3 course (either A Levels or a BTEC/CACHE) to enable you to apply to university. Your college would help you with your applications in second year. If you have any questions feel free to message me

    Thank you!! I've just got on to the Level 3 access course so I'll be applying for university soon. Do you think most uni's accept functional skills?

    Congrats! It depends on the university course. Some access courses will let you do a maths module and most universities will accept it.When it comes to applying to university it is best to look on the UCAS website or on their admissions page and see if they'll accept your functional skills, if they do not list their accepted equivalencies email them and ask.
