College is free but as an older student, you usually can’t attend a college. You need to pay to sit them privately through an exam centre

Hello. Search directly online on their official website, call them up or email the college for more information. Alternatively try to talk to some young people on Facebook etc who currently attend that particular community college for some more relevant details on what to expect. Jot down the pros and cons of all of your study programme options as well. Best of luck to you by the way however. Research your possible options carefully first of all. Discuss them too.

I was 20 when I started my level 3 engineering course at Bromley college and was 22 when I finished it. However, I had to get a loan (Student Finance) in order to do the course because I had done A-levels before, but the college was not checking if I had paid for the course. So you may have to speak to the college that you are studying at.
