    Should I join the sixth form offering me 4 A-levels or the one offering me 3 A-levels?

    Secondly, is it true that in some sixth forms, if students aren't achieving very good grades, those student won't get entered for those A-level exams and this will also keep their statistics looking good? Like 95% pass rate, just an example. If this is the case is it fair? If you choose a science A-level do you do practicals or is it all theory?

    Hi, I am currently having the same problem because I love my school but they will only let me do 3 subjects and I want to do a 4th German but I am not sure if it is worth moving schools just to do 4 subjects. Did you go to the open days at those schools, if so which did you like better?
