    Okay before anyone tells me how moronic I am, I'm fully aware.

    Basically, me and my boyfriend have been together over 2 years, and we're heading towards the end of year 11 and we go off to college soon.

    I have M.E so I haven't been to school for 6 years, meaning I'm gaining hardly any GCSES, and the ones I am gaining, I'm not doing particularly well in, apart from English.
    I want to be an English teacher, and the college I initially wanted to go to, wants 5 GCSES at grade B or above to study Literature and Language, which is impossible for me.
    My boyfriend still intends to go to this college, and it's really getting me down for some reason.
    we've never been to the same school as each other because of all the time I've had out of education, and we've always said how things would be different in college because we'd be together, even if we wouldn't have the same classes, we'd still have a connection being at the same college.

    so my question is, should I go to a college where all my friends and boyfriend are going to and do a lower course, or go to a college where I know nobody and be on my own and have a greater chance of doing the course I want? (lower grade boundaries.)

    What do you think? I'm sure somebody has had this dilemma? I just think we'll grow apart if we go to separate colleges, people are always saying how they drifted from their partner after they went to separate colleges?:')

    thank you for listening to my rant omg, feels good to get it out.

    Option b)
    Usually partners drift away in uni (not all) But colleges? I haven't really known of that. Also why in brackets does the course I want? have in brackets lower grade boundaries? whats the point in doing a course you may not enjoy, just because it has lower grade boundaries (and I'm pretty sure in terms of alevel grade boundaries they're fairly identical, 60ums=c, 70ums=b 80ums+=A (at as level))
