    Hi

    I am considering going to college. I need some urgent help because I need to enroll as soon as possible. What are the differences? What are the pro's and con's? Do I have to attend every lesson in college? Is there a % of attendance I need to have? What will happen if I don't reach that % of Attendance? Is it different for all colleges? I just need some help. The above questions for college. If you can help advice please do!!!!

    I go to a sixth form college.

    Much like regular sixth form, you will be expected to attend lessons and I suppose you would get kicked off the course if it didn't meet whatever requirements they set (maybe 90%?).

    I'm glad that I'm studying at a college instead of a standard sixth form. It really feels good separating myself from all the lower years. I get a lot more independence. I can wear my own clothes (not like I have much fashion sense).

    Some of this might be limited to my college, so bear that in mind:

    The days start later (09:15).

    The cafeteria is 10x better than school meals.

    All the usual subjects are offered.

    The subjects are 3 hours long rather than useless one hour lessons.
