    I got BBE in by AS results, I hate my subjects apart from geography (the only one I want to carry to A2). After making a plan with my teacher to carry Geography on to A2 and doing biology and history at AS (which is what I wanted to do in the first place but the option blocks last year did not let me) and do part time study once I had finished my A2 in geography and carry bio and history to A2, the college I attend stated that they're not letting anyone on the A level course for more than two years. Going to another school isn't an option for me, at the beginning of my course this was not expressed to me so surely they cannot do this? I really need some help on what to do, I have a meeting tomorrow at my college and surely they cannot just ruin my educational life like this? I am paying/ would be paying for my third year anyway so surely this doesn't matter??

    It's difficult to say.

    I think this could be a matter of funding and numbers for the college. Sixth form colleges in particular don't usually have students staying for three years any more.

    See what they can offer you. You may be better off 'biting the bullet' and continuing your AS subjects.

    Let me know how it goes.

    At my ex sixthfrom, i knew people who started off with a BTEC level 2 and then moved on to As and from that to A2.

    In total, that is 3 years spent because they had to resit GCSE's and do BTEC level 2 then do As and then A2.

    This made them 19 when they finished sixthfrom

    I believe, they were not required to pay anything.


    However, it will depend on your sixthfrom/college

    Yeah I think that students get 3 years of funding post GCSE if they decide to go to college/sixth form and therefore students can resit a year without having to pay.

    Thanks for the advice everyone! I have carried my B grade a levels over to A2 and started a new AS. I have established I'll have enough UCAS points (320) to get into good UNI's (aiming for Plymoth) if I get three A's. Thanks again!
