    It's usually fine, but make sure to apply for a few places if your not sure as then you can make your mind up closer to the time. That's what I'm personally doing anyway, but check with the specific school bevause they're all different.

    yes, seen a ton of people leave and come into six forms that way. i think after 2 weeks is pushing it and 2 weeks is the max ive seen,the 2 weeks he wasn't in the school also counted towards his attendance though, so he was never really above 85%, even though he rarely bunked lessons.

    idk if it's the same at other schools, but if you leave my school for sixth form and decide to go somewhere else, you can usually come back within the first few weeks or so

    If the sixth form doesn't suit yiu and you would work better somewhere else, you can probably make the change if you consult the sixth forms. Some people I know have even made the change after a year in sixth form, but they might have extra catch up work. As long as you feel comfortable and that you are working well, that's the most important thing

    Thanks, It's so hard to choose which sixth form to go to.
