After advice/info -my stepson has come to live with us-he is 16 and has Scottish nationals 3 in English and Maths. Am I correct in thinking these are equivalent to about an F grade in GCSEs? If he was starting at a post 16 college in England I think he'd need to take English and Maths GCSEs but just trying to work it out. We're trying to give him a fresh start as he's had a bumpy ride in life so far. Any advice greatly appreciated.
