    Haha, you just say the obvious. stuff ive clearly heard before. its irritating. Sorry Its9am. been up all night sorting stuff out on my server. Don't mean to be obnoxious.
    It is possible but is very hard and expensive to sit the exams privately, and usually depending on the area you can't do it without being assigned to a sixth form

    Usually you have to go through the areas education board and some are more lenient than others. Some will refuse you because you no longer go to college, as by law we now have to be in some form of education till were 18.

    So they probably won't even give you the time of day and will write you off.

    They go through a sixth form or education centre, but they have never been to school so it's very easy, also they have proof they have been doing work. Whereas you have quit college because you can't be bothered going so they will probably take that against you.

    Just go to college and stop being lazy and not bothered, your making life so hard for yourself

    Think you can still do A. Levels as an external candidate.

    Decide how important they are to you... Only you can decide...

    It may go either way... Often though teachers don't take too kindly to continual non attendance.... They may take it very personally...

    Has to be your decision....but of these qualifications are important I'd buckle down, rather than start getting into a head to head with the 6th form boss..

    I'm in sixth form and have very poor attendance too. I've had several meetings arranged with my year head and one with headmaster next week. My attendance is like 84.5%? My mum keeps saying they are going to kick me out and I don't really doubt it, but I know I will not be able to maintain an attendance above 95% no matter what threats I get. It is very difficult to cope with.
