GCSE is general certificate of secondary education, I don't know what the equivalent is in romania though. You can get GCSE's in different subjects, so what exactly are they asking for? Because depending on how old you are colleges offer GCSE courses for resits - not necessarily all subjects though

You should be able to do GCSEs at your local college, or else you could study for them online and register at a local test centre.

Generally, GCSEs take 2 years to specifically study for, although they are the accumulation of 12 years of study for British teenagers. However, you will probably only need a grade 4 in Maths and English language, so depending on your current levels in those subjects, they could take more or less time than 2 years. Below I will link the specifications for the AQA English language and maths which will show you what you'll need to do.

And here are some past/ specimin papers that will give you an example of what you can expect on GCSE papers. Remember that they won't all be on the current specification, but they will be similar enough to give you a sense of the level of knowledge you'll need!

Thank youu!
No problem! I looked up the Romanian equivilent to GCSEs and I think it may be the diploma de 10 clase, so if you have maths at that level already they may take it!

If your 23 you have obviously done a Romaine equivalents which should do although you might need to do an English test to make sure you understand enough to follow the course that’s quite common.
