    I'm pretty strong at Maths (was good/confident at AS, but dropped out of sixth form completely due to health issues), and it would be a shame if I couldnt put it on my CV, given how likely my chances of passing are (I know A2 is harder, pls stop).

    It would be especially helpful due to the fact that I want to go into engineering at degree level. Is there any way I could do this? Night/Weekend courses? Enter privately and get a tutor? My concern is that an apprenticeship qualifies as full time study so my government funding is taken.

    Thanks for replies in advance.

    Yes you can apply privately with a tutor. They would qualify as your 'referee' on UCAS. If you start revision now whilst it is still early, then you should have time for both an apprenticeship and your revision. Since you can do a little at a time.
