    I didn't think you could, I'm pretty sure quite a few people in my old school had to wait until they could leave

    Reading your other thread though, are you sure you don't want to do highers in school? You'll be very young at college even then

    Yeah lol. School gets a lot better in fifth year all the idiots drop out and you can have a laugh with most of the teachers

    and you never know you might surprise yourself and get onto the higher courses anyway lol

    I wanted to go to college after 4th year but didn't and i'm quite glad I didn't because the higers were hard enough without having to worry about meeting new lecturers etc

    however

    you must be in full time education until you are 16, whether it at school or college. if it falls between june and august you are still in education until the next school year starts.

    You can leave at 15 as long the school agrees with it AND it's full time. But, if your attendence falls bellow 70% at college, you'll be shipped right back to school. You can offically leave school and stay at college at xmas during your year 1 at college.

    Bloody confusing english :hmmm: We have real colleges here, not piss-take sixth forms :p:

    I found that college really brought me out of mah shell, a mere chick to a full chicken from school to college...:p:

    No.

    "31st May of that year if your 16th birthday is between 1st March and 30th September or the start of the Christmas holiday if your 16th birthday is between 1st October and the last day of February."
