    Depends on the College/6th form in question. At 6th form you don't get the free time as much, we get "study periods" where we don't have lessons but have to be in, generally used for doing homework. This means you get more work done though, whereas you aren't necessarily pushed as hard in college, as the classes may be bigger ect.

    in most places. 6th forms (in school) are more academic than colleges. while in a college you have loads of free time, you'll probably be around people who won't wana study that much and will muck around in that free time rather than study (this is just from my own experience and I realise I am generalising but usually sixth forms in schools are much better than colleges as there are less people in the sixth form so teachers care more whereas in a college there can be like 4000 16+ year olds studying:/ )

    hope this helps! and good luck with everything! xx

    Yeah I gotta say we are pushed hard at the sixth form I go to (though they have always been like this, and are a very pushy private school generally) but we do all get good grades! I think it all depends how much you can motivate yourself to do independent study because if you're bad at that, and may need a little push, then maybe a sixth form would treat you better than a college where you need to motivate yourself.
