Hello, I’ll send you some links below to some websites about this. You can do an apprenticeship, however, most companies will ask for a GCSE in maths and English (or at least maths). If you resist your GCSEs it doesn’t take too long? And you could then apply for an apprenticeship or go onto BTECS / a-levels.

Another thing you could do, is a level 2 course at college instead of resitting your GCSEs. Theirs so many other options you can do!

As long as you are not 18 you have to stay in full time education/training or employment. So if you fail your GCSEs you have 3 options:
1) Apply for a full time course (BTEC level 1)
2) Apply for an apprenticeship (level 1)
3) Job (Something like KFC etc.)

However, if I would be you, I would apply for a level 1 or level 2 course and when doing my course I would attend GCSE re-takes lessons. Resits are in November so you can study over holidays to avoid failing your re-sits and studying for another x years. If you really don't want to do GCSEs you can apply for any level 1 course and do Functional Skills. Functional Skills are much easier but then you can't go to uni and you may struggle with finding a good job as many people prefer GCSEs.

If you just finished year 11, don't worry about your results! They are usually much better than you think!
