Hi, I'm going to a new college next year & starting afresh, thing is I'm stuck deciding as I'm 50/50 on both. So I need some help..
Offers the subjects I want to do - preferably a-levels
Brilliant facilities - educational and for social
Massive building & loads of space
OFSTED rating outstanding
Offers a wide range of a-levels and btec's
It will allow me to make a fresh start where no one will know me
Don't have to go in every day
Felt confident in the college
Loads of opportunities
Can do a levels and do btec at a later date
Friendly people - taster session absolutely brilliant loved it.
Pastoral care which my current college is useless at
Didn't seem misleading - my sixth form teachers pretty much lie about everything
Students who want to go to university get ``special attention``
College itself has a great rep. and is one of the best fe college in the county
Worried I would find my subjects too hard (11 gcses @ b's - d's mediocre from TSR's level... i know...)
Not many university courses jump out at me at the moment apart from history and also - but what can i do with that???
Dunno if i really wanna go university - If I did btec i would get work experience too - we don;t get that with a levels.
Offers loads of extra curricular clubs something colleges & sixth forms in my area seem to be lacking in...
Would allow me to choose a course so would land me on the path to one of my preferred career paths
My friend is there
btecs = coursework which I mostly do better in
Way more free time
The taster session was fun and the course seemed interesting despite what happened.
I don't know a lot about the college itself
Only offers btecs - no a levels
I would be stuck with the btec - i'm an indecisive person
I think I would miss learning
Even if i did do btec it I wouldn't be able to do the TechBacc
Worried I would be limited
Felt v. insecure in the environment and generally uncomfortable in that college environment
Thanks in advance for your help
PS.Spoiler:ShowThis is being posted in the btec forum as well, as I gather I may get some bias answers...
Which college should I choose? Help!!
