    My granddaughter is studying in the American system in Ecuador. When she graduates she wants to come to the UK to do her A levels. Can a school get funding for an 18 yrs old to do a 2 yr A level course? She is a British citizen.

    Is she getting an american high school diploma? If so, she doesn't need a levels. They're equivalents.

    She will leave with a bachelor's in sciences, I think. But that is very general. She wants to do English literature language and Spanish at a level, to get her in the UK system. She needs to be here 3 years before she goes to university.

    If she is leaving with a degree why need a levels? that is basically going back a few years. I'd say consider working maybe? Or look at graduate studies?

    Can anyone answer my original question? My granddaughter wants to get to Oxford university. To do English literature. Can schools get funding for an A level student when they start at 18yrs, it means she will be in her 19th yr in her upper 6th?

    I also have a high school diploma and I'm actually searching for a sixth form college. The answer to your question is that the exam is funded until she becomes 19.
