...Basically, I do not have any GCSEs. I do, however, have a 2:1 BSc (Hons) International Relations with a 1st Class Distinction in dissertation. I got to University via an Access to HE course which, I've come to realise, means Jack Sh*t to the Army for some reason. The very unhelpful RLC recruiter tried explaining to me that GCSEs are of higher value than a degree, but that's another story in itself... Therefore, it seems that I have no choice but to sit 5 GCSEs. My queries are: has anyone had any experience with sitting GCSEs as an external candidate? Do you think it's realistic to sit 5 GCSEs before this Summer is out? I've contacted AQA and my local college, but have heard F-all back. Cheers.
