Really need advice on finding a 6th form college to do A levels. watch

    • Thread Starter

    So the situation is this. I'm 24, live in london and have some AS levels from years ago but didn't complete the A2 stuff. I want to go back and take 3 A levels, ideally within a year, though i understand I might have to do it over two. I'm fairly clueless about finding an appropriate 6th form college or whatever. It might be better to find somewhere with a greater number of mature students. It's not a great concern of mine however.

    Might not be relevent but I intend to take maths, biology and one literary subject (classics if possible or something else), though i could change my mind. I've been using the khan academy to learn the mathematics over the past few months.

    Also, what's the typical deadline for starting a course in september?

    Any help or direction is appreciated.

    (money shouldn't be an issue, ask if you want any more details)

    Deadline for sixth forms this September may have already closed.
    Try your local colleges, and enquire about mature students - how many they have on role, etc. Also, you may even be able to do a night-course, rather than a day-time course. Usually there are more mature students at night-college.

    Oh, enquire ASAP though.

    I applied for the college in at now last August.
    You may as well try to apply or go and speak to the college/sixth form
