    I need to make a decision FAST.

    I started college 2 weeks ago or so, made a few mates, doing a BTEC IT course which is equivilent to 3 A Levels. But i don't like the enviroment, and the friends i made aren't exactly 'good' mates, if something big happend they'd probably just ditch me, it's three days a week, however i have to travel 1hr30mins to get there each way..So 3 hours travelling altogether.

    Should i go to sixth form and study A levels? However, the thing is i know i can get 3 Distinctions(DDD) which is equivilent to AAA doing the course at college but at sixth form i'd be lucky to get CCC.
    I got C's for all my GCSE's. However, i really didnt work hard on my GCSE's. I will on A levels and TRY and reach B grades.
    Edit: I'll be taking Law,Business Studies,Philosophy & Sociology.

    Both A levels & my BTEC course are 2 years, should i stay at college hating the enviroment/atmosphere,people of it all.

    Or going to sixthform and being with all my old mates,teachers, good envrioment that i enjoy and getting C's?
    I'm already 3 weeks late on A levels i'd have to do a fair bit of catching up.
    Btw i want to go to university.

    Thanks :/ Need adivce/opinions
