Hello there. I am just curious about opinions from Polish teenagers who attend FE colleges. In my town (Barnsley) there are only 2 other Polish... I am on BTEC Nat Dip for IT Practitioners and it is ok, totally different than Polish school

I am not sure about now but many years ago it was possible to do G.C.S.E. Polish at the Polish POSC Institute in Hammersmith, West London. The examination was held once a year at two centres, one being Ravenscourt and the other was Sheffield. POSC in Hammersmith used to hold Saturday classes too for both G.C.S.E. and G.C.S.E. 'A' level.

Mind you, I am talking about fifteen years ago so maybe not now? G.C.S.E. Manachest board will be able to confirm dates and venues.
