    I got my AS results and it wasn't that good. So I'm thinking of moving to a college near me to redo my A Levels. My subject teachers at my school aren't really that helpful but my head of year is a great teacher (I had her for sociology and psychology). It's chemistry and biology that I failed to get the grades in and I really need it for the uni course that I am looking forward to do. I'd appreciate if someone could offer me some advice on whether I should think about moving or not. Thanks

    Hi! I moved to a college after completing my GCSE's at school. My AS Level results were awful so I have to move back to school and start again. In my opinion, college isn't the place for me as I feel I work better in a school environment where the teachers already know me and how I learn. College seemed a good option at the time but I am happy to be going back t my old school. It all depends on how well you learn as an individual. If you appreciate doing your own thing to learn the syllabus then I recommend you try college. But maybe you should speak to your head of year first to look at all of your options and see if they can help with your teacher issue. I wish you all the best in whatever you decide!

    That sounds a lot like the situation I'm in! x'D
    I would say that as long as you know that taking longer to complete a levels doesn't give you a disadvantage when applying to said uni course.
    Also if it truly was only the teaching that was at fault. I think a good chem teacher is vital... for me at least its very difficult to self teach from a textbook.
