first you gotta find out what subjects the sixth form offers, when you find that out you'll know everythin else
as levels is 4 or 5 subjects in most sixth forms, with our sixth form you have one full day in the week, and the rest of the days you have a double free, so it works out ok

You can pretty much do any subjects you did for GCSE, there are a couple of restrictions, like you can't do English Language and Literature as separate A-levels, you have to do the combined one, you can only one of the biology options (human biology, the one that means plants, or combined) and you have to take maths to do Further maths.

We had 5 hours a week for each subject, but that was back in the days before AS/A2, but I'm guessing it won't be too different. You'd get the rest of the time off for "private study" basically free periods for going into town or going to Maccy D's!

Once you receive your GCSE results, you will choose an AS subject your school is offering. At my old college, an A-level subject was normally five lessons a week. A double AVCE, was 10 lessons a week. It really depends on your college.

Well here you can take language and literature as seperate subjects, so it isn't always true.

without a doubt, sixth form is better than college.
At sixth form only ppl who want to learn stay on. The atmosphere is so better and the the teachers respect you more.

Go for it!
