    My mum forced me to go into private school as i didnt do very well in my gcses and im currently doing my AS. My mum is struggling to pay and she said that i might not be able to continue onto next year. But thats when im going to be applying for university? She keeps telling me that i can go to a free college but I keep telling her that the CIE exam board AS grades cant be transformed to aqa or ocr. Im going to get a part time job soon but it wont be enough to pay. Is there any way the government can pay? Bursaries? I know its my fault for not doing well in my gcses but i was severely depressed. What can i do?? I have to stay here.

    The college has bursaries and a hardship fund normally

    You could teach yourself and sit cie in the UK.

    Alternatively just redo year 12. It isnt the end of the world by any means.

    Do not underestimate what a financial stress it is on your mum.

    Those are your choices.

    Go to college or teach yourself. It is unusual to be doing CIE in the uk.

    Talk to your college but ultimately your choice will probably just be to transfer and start again.
