at my school, it says that it is open to everybody

but as my school is so popular in the area there is too high a demand from kids who actually want to follow through from the year 11 - so basically the oldies have to bugger off!

There quite a few people at my sixth form who doing GNVQs (there particularly alot on the performing arts GNVQ and travel and tourism or whatever it called) who started when they were 18-19. They won't finish till they are 20-21 (or 22 depending when they birth date is) respectively because it a two year course. There are a few doing A-Level that started there first year when 17 but I don't think there are any older than this in my classes anyway.

Sixt forms usually acceot people only 16-19. Proper colleges have no age limit though. People that want to get go to university usually opt for a two year Access course though rather than A-Levels think in these situations.

I got a question, if older people do A-Levels at a colege (not night-classes, daytime) do they have to go to the classes with all 16-19 year olds? Or do they have separate classes for 'mature' candidates?

They just go to the same classes as the younger students.

Please someone tell me where are all these schools that allow students over 19 yrs to do A-levels because I can't find anywhere and its all seeming a bit unfair at the moment. Thanks

you dont have to go straight from schollo (16) but i think it should consider where it is if it a 6th form college it aint bad but putting adults in to a school situating wouldnt be easier or safe have 11 year old children with some odd man is quite scary.

Then there are loads of colleges around - there must be! Contact Connexions or your local IAG (Information, Advice and Guidance) service to find out more about what you could do.
