    Has anyone been removed from their sixth form or college? I heard about this at my school.

    If you're a U grade extraordinaire, then yes.

    My schools sixth form is notorious for kicking people out on a-level results day. Last year was a record with 20-25 people being forced to leave, out of about 90 students; though it is less than 15 people this year as far as I know

    My sixth form will also use this opportunity to kick out people who they are not too fond of, even if they have perfectly reasonable grades eg BBBCD. Not particularly fair but I will applaud them for being resilient with the rules :P I must admit the largest casualty has been to boys to moved to our sixth form (all girls in the lower school) as they generally aren't as well behaved or dedicated as people who've attended the school for 5+ years.

    That's a bit corrupt, isn't it? Ha!

    Do you know what any of them went on to do?

    I think most moved to other schools which were much less demanding (there's a non selective state school next door which lots end up transferring to) and some do apprenticeships

    I was kicked out of my secondary school's sixth form (after GCSE results)... not because I did badly, but because I was their top student and they thought I was "too bright" so they un-enrolled me without my consultation- what a nightmare that was! The school I ended up at for sixth form, despite being one of the best performers in Kent, doesn't really kick people out after bad AS results, even if they got 5 Us (yes, we were made to do 5 AS levels). If the student really wants to stay, then they're given the option of resitting the year and they can even completely change their subjects- but they can only do this once.

    They let people continue with 5 Us. That's madness!

    Oh, I mean they didn't force them to leave the school like I know a lot of schools do, they were offered the option to resit the year if they wanted to

    hahaha, i think its a good idea tbh.

    weeds out the weak and the people who do not want to be there. If they struggled at AS it is surely going to be an uphill battle from sept.
