    ok the problem is that i have enrolled at two college mainly because college 1 did not let me take my chosen subjects however college 2 does the difference between the two colleges is that college 1 has very high standards however the other is average in terms of exams results. so now i have to decide which college i should go to. and belive or not i am confused about which college i should attend. plz guys i need ur advice if possible.

    I'd go to college 2. Doing subjects you enjoy means you're more likely to get good grades anyway, and just because the college isn't very good doesn't mean you can't do well. A-levels are more about independent learning than GCSEs anyway.

    College 2, definitely. Take subjects you enjoy, even at an 'average' college, and you're likely to do well. At the other college you may not enjoy it because you can't do the subjects you want, and the very high standards may add to the annoyingness (lol) so your grades might not be as good as they could be.

    Yea was in literally the same situation as u and in my case I chose equiv of college 2. Came out with AAB in Maths Economics and History the subs I wanted to do!

    Most students choose the college/sixthform because the timetable works out so they can do what they want to do. Plus if you're generally bright anyway it won't have much effect on your results on what college you choose.
