Well... i can tell you about both sixth form and college, having just changed schools half way through my A levels.

AS: At sixth form, I had quite large classes. I took popular subjects i guess and ended up with my smallest class being French, with 9 people in. However, at college the classes had about 6 people in each becaus ethey offered so many more subjects. My French class was a bit bigger though but i guess Frenc h was a popular subject.

A2: Not sure what the classes will be like at college when i start back next week, but they should be smaller... so i'll either end up in a merged group or in a group of about 4 because people drop out of every subject. At sixth form ive been told by friends though that the classes havent got much smaller... just a few people have dropped each.

So in my opinion, class sizes are smaller in college.

Im in year 12, and my class sizes so far are:
History - 9 people
Maths - 12 people
Physics - 3 people

Im doing chemistry and english lit at a college which has links with my sixth form, so those classes will probably be quite big.

I go to sixth form at a comprehensive school with about 100 Year 13s and probably about 120 Year 12s.

AS English lit: About 20 at the start of the year and about 17 at the end.
AS sociology: In my class, 7 at the start of the year and 4 at the end, but there was another class with about 7 in all the way through, so about 14 at the start and 11 at the end.
AS history: 14 at the start and 12 at the end.
AS French: 7 at the start and 5 at the end.

A2 English lit: 13 (oooh unlucky!)
A2 sociology: 10 (all one class)
A2 history: 8
A2 French: 3

AS: History 9
Law 20 +
French 7
German 3

A shame law's so popular that I'm in a full class with loads of idiots in it, I can't complain though considering my other classes are so small.
