I'm 26 and want to start learning in science I did get a C in GCSE years ago but wondering if I'm to old now to get a career in science, like how long would it take, what paths are there. Thanks

its never too late, youre going to have to get some sort of a level to actually get a degree at university so be prepared to work hard. i think you should speak to some sort of careers adviser about it as they would direct you to suitable colleges/other places you could go to do a degree in the sciences

iGCSEs are typically the same as GCSEs with some minor changes content wise. If you're looking to go into a particular area then do separate science. Combined is very easy and misses out alot of things, they're usually meant for students who aren't necessarily looking for an academic career. But yes, do a science or two of the ones you're interested in along with maths and possibly an english GCSE. Then do 3 A levels which would support your university application (I'm a physics student so I did physics, chemsitry and maths a levels). Then apply through UCAS to your chosen universities. So the GCSEs you could get done in a year, the a levels typically take two years. Then an undergraduate degree would be either 3 or 4 years (3 for BSc, 4 for MSc)
