    I'm currently at sixth form doing Biology, Maths, Psychology and BTEC Business which i really want to change to Economics! They are not letting me change it as i missed a module. I want to pursue a career in Law... I want to change school so i can change my subjects as firstly Psychology is not really helpful, nor is Biology, by changing schools (depending on if they would let me in) i could change those subjects to at least one essay based subject which i'm good at, History. What should i do? I don't want to waste a year of my life!!!

    You'd still miss a year of your life though because you can't just arbitrarily apply to colleges now in November, you'd have to wait for the next intake.

    You do realise you can just continue with your subjects and apply for Law anyway? You by no means need to do Law at A level to study it at university. You could even apply to do Law with foundation year if you don't think you'd be ready to jump straight into the subject at degree level.

    You've left it too late now to change subjects, you could look into studying an extra subject (be it Business or Law) independently and getting help from your college, but you'd have to pay for your exam entries. Speak to your college/sixth form about that if you're interested and have the money (I've heard it can cost over a hundred pound for exam entries but I don't know)

    Depends on the university ! Anything from A*AA to ABB from what I've heard (of the top universities - lower universities will have lower entry requirements)
