    Hello Carla

    "GCSE" stands for "General Certificate of Secondary Education". You can sit a GCSE in almost any subject.

    In British schools, most pupils sit for their GCSEs at the age of 15-16. You usually take no more than nine.

    "To catch kissable callers" is much more mysterious. I've never heard this phrase before. Is it a clue in a crossword?

    Thank you Mr Pedantic for your help. 'To catch Kissable callers' is an expression used in a book that I'm translating.

    Regards

    Hello CMP

    "Caller" usually means either a visitor (someone who calls at your door) or a person who calls you on the phone.

    "To catch" might mean "to ensnare".

    "Kissable" probably means "attractive".

    Does that make any sense, in your context?
