I'm 21 years old and want to re-take/re learn a couple of my GCSE's to see if I have what it takes to progress onto A-levels then ultimately attending a university deservingly without have to cut corners to get a place etc.
I went to college where I studied business (picked it without really thinking of a career). I finished the course and went into doing some entry levels jobs where I DO NOT want to be working which realistically will be the case if I don't re do my education etc.
Year 2 Pearson BTEC Level 3 Diploma Business (Distinction/Distinction)
Year 1 Pearson BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma Business (Merit)
After going into the real world and realising these are the types of jobs I could potentially end up doing for the rest of my life (bar, waiting, warehouse, retail, cleaning etc.) I panicked and got so scared I know I am capable of more and need a second chance in doing so. I am uncertain of what profession I want to pursue but and confident with time I will understand more and depending on the grades I achieve.
The plan is to retake my mathematics and sciences GCSE then depending on my results and feeling I would love to go onto A-levels etc.
Here are my results for those subjects:
Pearson Edexcel GCSE Mathematics (C)
Pearson BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificate Applied Science (Pass)
My goal is to achieve minimum B in Mathematics and Minimum B in Chemistry/Biology. I do not care how long it takes me to achieve these goals it is going to happen I refuse to work in those ****ty jobs.
I have a car and ideally would prefer classroom learning appose to online I live in West Sussex.
Any recommendations or advice on where I should start all help is really appreciate.
why do you want to get better at maths and science ? if you wanna do a pure STEM degree ... get ready for a massive relentless workloads, with many nights of regret; if you dont wanna do a STEM degree, i wouldn't bother with redoing maths or science.. just apply straight to a uni.
The reasons why I feel like I want to re take Mathematics/Sciences is because I ultimately want to end up with a decent career (like anybody) and feel that the careers that could be of interest to me require high grades in those subjects.
Lawyer, Solicitor, Dentistry, Banking, Teacher, Chiropractitioner, Engineering etc.. and feel that to get into a decent university I will have to have a Much higher grade in mathematics and sciences. I am very uncertain fo what exact career I want to do but I feel like having higher grades in these three subjects Science, Mathematics and English all open up endless possibilities to me and that's my reason for choosing them to be honest.
I want to commit to university and a degree that is respected not just select something like Physical Educations/Business Management etc for the sake that there the realistic choices in my current situation not disrespecting people studying those degree but if I were to go to university I would want to study for something that IMO is worth doing that will be rewarding.
