    Hi everyone,

    I'm hoping to start my A-Levels in September at my local college. I went to sixth form for a year when I left school but decided it wasn't for me as I didn't want to go to uni.

    Having now spent the last couple of years working I've a more clear idea of what I want to do. I will be taking Geography, Sociology and Philosophy A-Levels and a Philosophy or Sociology degree afterwards.

    My question is, what do you think it will be like starting my A-Levels at 19? I'd have thought there'd be more people my age at a college than a sixth form. Obviously I'm there for the qualifications but I want to make friends too. Also, what will it be like starting uni at 21?

    Any advice welcome, many thanks
    You'll be older and more mature but not so old as to put anyone off of being your friend.
    Conclusion - you'll be fine
