Two years ago I’ve got my GCSEs, at that time just arrived to London so with my poor English did my exams but I couldn’t pass English Language, I got a 3. A 4 in RE. Got 5 in maths, literature and art. In combined science got 5-4. Grade 9 in Spanish and also get a grade B in Financial Education.

At the time to apply to Sixth form many told me that because English is my second language they thought that I wouldn’t be able to understand the subject so I had to retake my exam doing Health and Social Care BTEC.
During that year many things occur so I had to leaved and go to Spain for many months. Now that I came back I don’t now what to do because now I’m 18 so I don’t really now if I could go to College. I’m struggling to apply because they really make me feel uncomfortable and insecure those days. I really want to go to university.

Sorry if I didn’t made my self clear, I’m still working on my English.

Perhaps sixth form colleges is not the best option for you, it’s not the only route into university trying finding out about local courses in your preferred subjects, techs may be a good option? Most sixth form colleges only take those coming directly from 5th year, but open colleges are much more flexible, and can provide much more specialised education, often leaving more time free in the week, if you want to earn more external qualification/volunteer/work or other activities that might bolster your UCAS application

Which A-levels did you want to study. You can always retake your English GCSE. With the right help, you can do good.
