I am not wanting to go to the sixth form attached to the school as I am wanting a change and make new friends (and lets face it, get a girlfriend) but the sixth form that I was wanting to go to doesn't offer an ICT course. What should I go?

Does it offer computer science? You could take maths too.

It does offer computer science but it is considered a challenge which requires a few more A's than I have as I have mostly B's. But if I get more A's what would you recommend?

ICT is easy and can be self taught at home at any time. I've learned more about computers and programming at home more than I have at school. But then again, you'll need qualifications.

You should either take maths or compsci then, or both. I'm pretty sure you can become a technician with compsci/maths, but i'm probably the person you shouldn't ask.

A-levels in ICT are completely different from the duties of an IT technician. I don't think technicians learn about input/output devices for the 10th time and work in MS word/excel/access. Take Computer Science, it has most of the ICT syllabus in it but has more detailed and useful theoretical component with an actually useful practical one too.

Thanks! The other sixth form does offer computer science.
