Does anyone know what college entry requirements would be needed for a Home Educated teenager ??
What would they need instead of GCSE's ?

Entry requirements for what? If A Levels or Univesity I would have thought that only GCSE's would do - the college needs to know that the students has a certain level of knowledge before they embark on a particular course. And GCSE's are at the moment the only thing we have. I doubt an exception would be made for a HE student.

Could your ds/dd not do GCSEs though - they can be entered as an external candidate at many colleges up and down the country?

I work in a HEI and we expect all applicants to have undertaken some sort of formal examination-this may be GCSEs, IB or international qualifications. All students MUST have the equivalent of a C in Maths and English at GCSE level, regardless of the course they want to follow.
