    If you go to a place with a good reputation then it'll look better, but it shouldn't affect yoru chances too much. It largely hinges on your predicted grades and references.

    Um. No.

    Good grades are good grades.

    Anyway, some sixth forms are awful, some colleges are fantastic and vice versa.

    Exactly.

    Doesn't matter where you come from. They're interested in you, not the college/sixth form. If you have good grades and a good personal statement then you're fine.

    I can hardly believe someone actually has been spreading such a silly rumor.
