I'm faced with several choices for my future at the moment, and I can't decide which to go with.
1) Stay on at my schools sixth form to do Psychology, Sociology, Maths and if they won't let me do 3 instead of 4 then Philosophy&Ethics too. However this is an option I'm hesitant about as I'm not really happy at the school right now and wouldn't want this continuing into sixth form.
2) Go to my towns local college, which stopped doing a levels this year so I'd instead need to do a btec in health and social care. I'm currently considering going on to do a degree in mental health nursing at uni in the future so this would fit well, and I've already emailed unis who've told me they would accept this, however I worry that if I was to change my mind in the future this choice could hold me back?
3) Go to another college an hours bus ride away to study psychology, sociology, maths and law. However this option I'm not too keen on the long travel times, the fact that I'd know nobody there and would be away from all my friends.
Any and all advice I'll be very grateful for, thank you in advance!

Why aren't you happy at school? I think you should talk to your teachers/parents; it would be very unfair if you felt you weren't able to do A levels just because of an issue at school.
I don't think you should do a BTEC unless you are 100% sure about what you want to do afterwards. If there's a chance you might change your mind and decide to do a different degree that doesn't relate to Health and Social care, do A levels, they are much more flexible.
