    So throughout my high school years, I really struggled with maths a lot and never managed to pass it when it got to my exams. I then spent two years in college studying level 2 qualifications because I could never pass my maths. It is very frustrating because it has stopped me from moving forward with my life. This summer just gone I made a brave decision to take a year out from having to repeat level 2 qualifications over and over again, and decided that it would be best for me to just study GCSE Maths and focus on just that. However, colleges require you to be 19 to study GCSE maths, due to it being a part time course and I am not 19 yet. I have been trying to find distance learning courses that don't cost but it has been hard because all of them seem to cost at least £250 but I do not have that money and need to find a maths course quick. Does anyone have any advice on where I can grants or FREE online distance courses etc. Thank you
