Left Sixth form for college. Help?

    • Thread Starter

    So after doing my first year of A levels, and not doing so well in my exams ( classics - D, theatre studies E) (I also did btec media production worth one a level and finished the first year of that with a Distinction*) I decided to leave my sixth form centre and move over to another local college to do btec creative media production (equivalent to 3 a levels). However I feel like I've made a mistake, I miss my friends and I miss my classes and what I was learning, I want to go back but I can't. What I can do though is change over to A Levels at this college I go to now, however the deadline for changing over to a levels is at the end of this week. I have no idea what to do, and I have no idea what I want to do in my future other than write and become an author (not very realistic I know). So I don't know if I should move back over to the a levels and risk getting low grades Again, or to stay on my media course that I'm doing now (which I am confident that I will get good grades in) but restrict what choices I have in the future. Any advice or help? Thank you.
