    I have no idea whether i should move from my schools sixth form to a college. I get good grades at my current school but would like to meet new people.
    i take art and the quality at the college isnt as good so i dont think i would take it anymore. the results in general arent as good, but happiness is worth more. id be happy in both places, but perhaps happier with a fresh start.

    also im unsure of what a levels to do.
    if i go to college, there is more choice but i wouldnt do art.

    I would definitely do the second option or the first option as it will demonstrate to potential employers/unis the wide skill base that you have! I did history AS level and am just about to take my English lit A2 and would say that you are kind of required to write an essay at the drop of a dime. The courses are very good though and history and English definitely compliment each other. I know from my friends that psychology is very demanding in terms of content and commitment to the subject so unless you love it, I'd recommend sociology as history is a difficult enough subject on its own!!

    Thanks! Ive found out i cant do history and drop it as, which causes issues for me as i know its a challenging subject. Im predicted A*s in all of the subjects i wish to pursue. Do you think art instead of history would be OK? Knowing id (hopefully) get a good grade in it. Id still have eng lit and bio as facilitating subjects

    I would move to a new college to meet new people because you'll feel a lot more motivated imo but still keep in touch and socialize with current friends.

    Yeah that should be fine and would definitely demonstrate you as having a wide skill base. To be honest it doesn't matter whether you have facilitating subjects or not. I mean at A2 my only facilitating subject is English literature. Obviously universities respect them but its more about what you want to do and whether it's related to your course. If you work hard at your respective subjects then that's all that matters.
