    Hi
    I retook my a levels at the age of 18. I was lucky enough to go to Private School for one year for the first time in the whole of my life! The London College was Called Davies Laing and **** College which used to be in Notting Hill London.

    They fast tracked my brain in one year and i came out with ok marks. But later in higher education i developed schizophrenia! Which gave me suicidal thoughts and left me to self harming, primarily because of dropping out from City University in my second year. (Bit complex reasoning)

    All i am saying is with rising costs of education and the erratic mind set later with higher education, is it worth going for re sitting A LEVELS at all? Sometimes you have to look ahead and see weather you will be prepared for a further 3-4 years at Uni until you graduate with all the costs and external influencing factors.

    Sometimes your better of finding a job and work your way up the ladder!

    Thanks

    It does work out for many though and retaking A levels can be a good choice to get into uni or the uni of their choice. Its cheap and much better than wasting £60,000 on the wrong degree.

    Maybe if you can get your schizophrenia under control then later in life you will go back or find another degree. there was a poster a year ago with the same on TSR and they had been sectioned, but they managed to turn it round and went to Oxford.

    Sometimes its better getting a job but other times it is not.
