Hey there! Am new here and was just wondering if anyone out there could give me a little advice on what to do! Am 20 year's old and wanting to go college to gain some qualifications so i can do a 3 year course at the school of nursing (didn't do GCSE'S due to having a baby). Now am in a bit of a difficult situation here, i have been advised by a student advisor at the college to do two course's (pre access at GCSE level, then Pre access to higher education A level standard) which would take two year's to do, but i was talking to a friend who said why don't i just do GCSE'S which will only take a year and plus if i decided not to be a nurse GCSE'S would be more useful than the Access course's. I don't really know what to do should i do the GCSE'S and try and gain 5 GCSE'S at grade C or above (it would take me 4 years to qualify as a nurse) or should i do the Access course's (which will take me 5 years to qualify)?
