    So hey, i'm a bit confused and worried about sixth form. I'll be 15 when i'll be entering sixth form and im scared i won't be allowed to because im "too young" and i really dont want to go backwards in school. So can anyone please tell me if i can still enter even though i'd be 15?

    Yeah I don't see why not. Some people go to university when they're 16 haha

    If you have GCSEs that meet the requirements then yes?

    Can I ask, how come you will be 15 when you go into sixth form? Did you skip a year?

    You'd need to discuss this with the schools/colleges you intend to apply to. I teach in two that would not accept students into sixth form a year early.

    I skipped a year and applied to several colleges/schools and none of them cared that I was younger. However a few schools might, so as the guy above me said it's best to discuss this with wherever you're planning to go to.
