    So originally my schools said they were doing a partnership with another sixth form where we could do courses at both, then they said they were not doing the partnership ( I posted a thread about picking a sixth form) but now they are saying the partnership might actually happen.

    If it doesn't go through again then will have to pick between two sixth forms. One where I would probs have the chance of 1 friend maybe two because it is my school's sixth form (I wouldn't be able to make new friends) or a new one where I'd be in a situation to make new friends.

    Just to add I don't have hardly any friends at the moment and have no social life.

    If it was too happen though I would pick two A levels at my school's sixth form and then two A levels at the other sixth form.
    If I was to do this, do you think I would be able to make a few or quite a few new friends in those two classes I do up the other sixth form?

    I did 3 A Levels (dropped to 2 mid way A2) at my main sixth form, and I did 1 A Level at another sixth form in my city. I had friends at my main sixth form, but no real friends at the other sixth form (however, my main sixth form was grammar school and the other one wasn't, so education levels alone were different). To do 2 A Levels in one sixth form and 2 in another seems quite a hassle! :eek: I found 3 and 1 to be iffy enough; it cut my time at my main school where I had all my friends.

    The situation that I am in is that I don't really have any friends in my main school.

    I didn't have many either, perhaps 2 close friends and a handful of 'friends'. I'm at uni now, and I'm only in contact with 1 of those close friends regularly. I found during A Levels I didn't have much of a social life, nor do I really have one at uni. :laugh:

    Is there anyone else in your year considering this partnership deal?

    Whether you make friends or not, you will at some point have to communicate with your classmates in your chosen subjects.

    Will it be the same subjects? If so, you might all fall in together, that happened when another school sent a few people to the school I sat my 1 A Level at. They weren't really friendly at their own school but when at a different school, they stuck together.
