bbc websites have a variety of maths and english programmes for revision etc, usually pretty good but unsure what level they go up to.

Have you tried LearnDirect dude? I dont know how it works or that but its free courses in various subjects including maths and english refresher courses.

oooh fab - what are you doing? are they HEFC's? if so the courses are really really good and ease you in really gently hope it all goes well for you though. I did HEFC's in biology, chemistry, psychology, geography and IT (which does end in y too) i hadn't been to school for nearly 10 years and they went really well

hi babybutton im doing maths english and IT as main subjects, and biology, chemistry and health studies,im hoping to go onto to uni and do a 2 yr paramedic course.

excellent - i got distinctions in all 5 of mine and am going to dental school in september so stick with it and you'll find it loads of fun - especially the biology course! the math and english shouldn't be much trouble as most of the work is assignment based and computers have spell checker and that green stuff that underlines things that are gramatically incorrect!! The chemistry does suck completely though - the start is nice but as soon as it gets into organic its pants but sticking with it will get you through - i wish you the best of luck with it all
