    So i started Sixth form on Monday and no offence to the place but I'm really not feeling it. I have considered that it may just be me getting used to being in education after the long break once I had finished my GCSE's but i don't think it is that. I'm just so demotivated and the thought of having to spend two years there makes me want to cry. I only chose this college because its the most convenient to travel to (Courtesy of my mother) and this wasn't my first choice. I'm currently studying A-level English literature, History and Psychology. I had previously wanted to study Graphics and product design but the college was 8 miles away.
    What should I do? Is it to late to change colleges?

    If you're not enjoying your subjects (which is really important at A-level, otherwise you'll be fighting an uphill battle) and you can't change at your current 6th form, maybe it's worth looking into siwtching.

    It is important to note though that things can feel scary at first until you get used to it.. but at the same time, it sounds like you actaully aren't enjoying it so.. maybe it is worth getting in contact with the college 8 miles away and see what happens.
