Hello, I am 17 years old. I came from Europe this year to UK. I only have Basic education from my country. Now I want to get Secondary education. The GCSE. I know that in UK people get 15-16 years old their GCSE in school. But I'm 'too old' for school, so where should I go.
I went to a college, but they can offer me only 3 GCSEs (English, Maths and Science). I want to get more GCSE, at least 5 subjects.
So where can I get more subjects of GCSE. I hope someone can help me. Thank you very much

or you could take them externally, but that would probably require tutoring unless you could self teach.
If possible, you could get your English and Maths GCSE and then get AS and/or A levels

But there is only 3 GCSE subjects that I can study. I don't want to study any courses, because I don't know what profession I want to study.

A Maths and English GCSE is often required at C/5 grade for access to jobs and A levels.
If possible you could skip to A levels, depending on the level of education you already have

if you can't find colleges that willlet you do 5 gcse your next choice is to do them online. there are plenty of online schools that offer tuition through skype. i have a friend who did online school for her a levels and she ended up getting As and A*s. only downside is, it is expensive, and for gsce they're not that difficult so you might be able to self teach, but if you don't want to take that risk then you should consider online schools.

It's probably worth doing the maths and English GCSE at college anyway seeing as they're usually free when you don't already have them. That, and maths/English are the only ones that are absolutely necessary for further study

hello sorry for the late repy, she used Oxford Advanced Revision and Wolsey Hall Oxford, both for her A Level and she got As and A*s so they should be good at teaching GCSE as well. Good luck w your studies
