    I'm deciding between 2 colleges currently one is a school with a sixth form and the other is an actual college. The school having 93% a*-c and the college having 71%a*-c. I haven't been to induction days with the college but heard its good if willing to work hard. And the school I went to induction days found it okay but some teachers wanted to almost put you off the subjects. Not sure which will be better for me, any opinions would be helpful!

    It might be worth having a quick visit to the college and seeing which you like better. Going to college is a fair bit different to going to sixth form. It's a bit more independent in some ways. The hours also might be a bit different and less structured. That being said, I much preferred college. It was in a better location, and the timetabling was great. There was a big difference between having teachers and sixth form and tutors at college, as well. College felt a lot more informal for me. You just have to go where you think you'll like and where you think you might do better. The sixth form does have a better A*-C rate of course
