Does anyone know any colleges in Calderdale that do Triple Science GCSE re-sit courses? I'm looking to actually achieve the 7's and 8's I was meant to get so I can drop out of art college and do A-level Bio and Chem.

There can't be that many colleges in Calderdale to ring up and ask them all directly?

Why do you want to take A level Bio and Chem? there's often alternative routes/qualifications that might be a better choice.

I need the A-Level qualifications from both to be able to apply for the marine biology course in Hull it seems, and I'm also annoyed at the results I got in my GCSE's. I prefer academic courses to practical courses, which is why I'm wanting to take the A-Level courses too.

Depending what you're studying at the moment then you could instead take an Access to HE Diploma (Pass Access to HE Diploma (Science) including 18 credits in Biology at merit or higher) - that's 1 year instead of 2 for A levels and doesn't require you to resit GCSEs first to start.

Alternatively if you're sure you want to go to Hull then their foundation year option would also be better that resitting GCSEs and taking A levels from scratch (I'm not a big fan of foundation years when there's an option to get the same qualification in a year but you're looking at 3 years minimum of FE study to get onto the degree - compared to that a foundation year at a university is a good option.

Edit: if you prefer academic to practical courses then marine biology is not a great choice. It's a highly practical degree.
