I’m 20 and I need 4 highers to get into uni, how I can resit them? I messed up big time at school. Am I too old to resit?

I want to study media at uni.

People are probably feeling very sorry for the OP, poor Beirut_Ewan. However, there's no need to do so because he is just an attention-seeking fantasist - as can be proved by his posting history.

For example, let's look at his posts on his education:

Here, he's just stated he's in his first year studying a BSc
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81917666

Yet a few hours ago, he wants to resit his highers to get into uni and study media
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81917810

Last August, he was studying for his HNC/HND and going to apply to uni NEXT year
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=79411110

At roughly the same time, he was bemoaning the fact that he only had a few GCSEs and no A-levels
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=79395058

Again in August, he was telling everyone he had messed up his exams (for entry to uni) and only had a C in English when he needed AAAA (in his highers)
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=79395058

But the day before this 'messing up' had been in the form of getting only a D when he needed ABBB https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=79309728

His love life is similarly 'messy':

Here he is wondering about a girl he is not really dating but who sends him texts with lots of kisses on them
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81914460

Yet here he's been with his girlfried for 3 years and wondering whether he's too young to get married at the age of 20
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81831804

And in this thread he's married and thinking about baby names
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81830426

I think that's enough for now.

Hello!
You can resit highers in college! Most colleges have Higher English and Higher Maths during night school but applications don't open till the summer time. You need to sit a like a mini exam (not hard!) to get into the class to see what teacher would be best for you. I am currently resitting Higher English and to get in (my college), you had to write an essay on a book you recently read. I heard Higher Maths is more difficult to get in as they give you a booklet to revise from after you applied, you must study this booklet and do like an exam based on the booklet. Good luck!

Some colleges do Higher Biology (my college does) at night as well.

The OP is a troll formerly known as Beirut_Ewan - see my post above.
