    Well I'm in AS year and have been studying them since this september. The problem is I really don't enjoy the college I'm going to, despite the fact that I thought it would be really good when I joined it. I want to join the college which some of my friends are going to which I think looks really good. I checked the website, and looked into the courses i am doing and the website said that there will still available places for all of them, but when I went to the college to speak to them today, I was told that it would be too late to join...
    What should I do now? :/

    The college I want to joinis Barnet College btw, and I'm studying English Lit, Chemistry, Biology and Psychology.

    Ask the college if they'd take you in at the start of your A2 year. If not, try a couple of other colleges and if they say no for now then ask if you can join for year 13 next year.

    Well the chances of them doing exactly the same exam board for all 4 of your subjects is slim, then there's the matter of altering the entries for any exams in January. Your best bet if you want to move is to move as soon as you've finished your AS exams, don't wait until september as most places start A2 in June and until then I would just stick with it, it goes a lot quicker than you might think.

    Ah, its just because you said college rather than 6th form. i know a couple of people who moved there (but have left now) and both were very disapointed with it.
