    Hey everyone.

    City College Plymouth which is my nearest college and is one hour twenty minutes away by bus have offered me an unconditional offer on A-Levels in Psychology, English literature, Maths and Geography. I'm wondering if this will be a problem with having to travel almost thee hours a day, five days a week. I'm totally committed to the courses.

    Sixth form which us about fifteen minutes away have offered me these alevels because of my GCSEs. They are: History, Philosophy&Ethics, Statistics and Photography.

    Degrees I am considering are Accountancy, Economics or Psychology with History.

    What do you think? Will the travelling seriously effect my results?

    Mine was an hour away; I was fine. Damn tiring though (full days too), but you get used to it.

    What about the subjects in taking? Aren't they quite heavy on.

    I wouldn't worry about that; though I would cut the A levels down to 3 to be reasonable.

    College says I have to do four due to government policy of having so many hours per week.

    That's very very weird... never heard of that before!
