Due to medical reasons, I am unable to complete my GCSE’s in time to join the rest of my year in sixth form. I am an October baby therefore already older than a lot of people in my year and repeating a year has never been on the table until it became obvious I couldn’t make the exams. I’m worried about the age gap (drinking,driving, etc. before my friends) and the stigma against “thick” people who have to replete. Can anyone ease my concerns?

You have a genuine reason for not being to complete your GCSEs in time, it isn't because you were struggling to pass the exams, so don't worry about what people think about you. The age gap isn't that big either, so I don't see it as posing a huge problem.
