Hello,
I am 16 years old and I have just finished school and i am awaiting results. I am expecting good grades in some and in others not so much. I have been offered a place at my school's sixth form and another place at a college. Should i chose to go the sixth form my options will be; Psychology, Physical Education and BTEC ICT. Should I go to the College my options will be; Psychology, ICT(A-Level) and BTEC Sport.

The sixth form is within walking distance and I have all my current friends their, also they offer A-Level PE which I enjoy and am hoping to have achieved high in that subject. However I have not heard many positives about the place and the quality of teaching and the lack of time the teachers have for the students. Also I have heard they still treat you like lower school students.

At the college it is a bus journey away, the college provide a free buss pass which you can use to go anywhere. The college is a new building and I often hear a lot of positives about it, such as the teachers having lots of time for students, high quality of teaching and lots of support. However they do not offer A-Level PE and this would be one of my 1st choices, but i am happy to do A-Level ICT instead.

I am stuck between choosing where to go, anyhelp is much appreciated.

If I was you I would go to the college that is a bus journey away as you meet lots of new people and make new friends. The quality of teaching is pretty good and that is essential at college. You need good teachers in order to pass your courses right? You're in a very similar position to me as well lol.

At the end of the day it is up to you on which college you should go to. But if I was you I would go to the college that is a bus journey away.

Good luck on your college and I hope you get the results that you want
