    so would anybody recommend swansea college?
    did you enjoy their course?
    did you pass?
    and how much does it actually cost altogether?

    A girl in my English class left my school to do the IB two years ago at Swansea College; as far as I know, she enjoyed it. I rather wish I'd done it sometimes instead of staying on in sixth form at my school.

    Good luck with your GCSE results!

    It's not much help but I looked at going there to do the IB. I was fully prepared to move there and go.

    If you were to do the course, it looks like you would be in good company.

    I thought the fees only applied to international students.

    your situation pretty much reflects mine
    got 9 GCSEs
    then went to college last september to do AS levels but found it boring most of the time
    now i don't want to go back there and make the same mistakes again
    i want to do something different!
    IB seems like more of a challenge

    are you doing an IB this year coming? in wales?

    I should be doing the IB yes, but not in Wales now, unfortunately. I never got round to applying at Swansea as I spent a lot of time thinking about it whilst applying to other places and then it was a bit too late.
