    I am currently in year 13 doing A Levels but i feel i made a mistake as my parents forced me to do them, but i wanted to go to college and wasn't allowed as they threatened to kick me out.
    I am failing all my subjects and it is looking like i will fail the exams in summer.
    In Year 12 i recieved a E in History D in Business and an E in English.
    Because it is looking like i will fail my A Levels will i be able to go to college if i fail? I will be 18 so i am wondering if it is too late. Please help i am extremely worried and i want that to be my back up plan
    btw i have 11 GCSE's 6 B's and 5C's inc English and Maths

    You can go back without paying if you do not turn 19 in the first academic year.

    If you do, you will probably get it free as you don't yet have a full A Level, but someone will need to check with you on this as I'm only half sure.

    Definitely try to go back though and **** what your parents say, pick what you wanna do man

    I have 19 year old friends in college so I think you should be fine. You should look to get in contact with the college that you want to go to and do what's necessary for you to enrol next year. Your parents can't kick you out if you're under 18 as far as I'm aware (I had a friend in a similar situation and he was forced back home).

    Legally, they can kick you out from age 16. However social workers and stuff will try to get them back into their parent's house ideally
