    i was just wondering?I know most sixthforms you can stay for an extra year apart from the two compulsory (y12 and y13). But I was wondering if they would let you stay another year if you moved there in year 12 (starting over ) as I did a year somewhere else. making me almost a year older than most

    depends on the sixth form. some sixth form colleges have loads of people staying on for resits who are a bit older and it's no problem, whereas most sixth forms part of a larger school are a bit more pushed for space and probably only a year or two if you need it

    I think 19 is kind of the max. But there might be some 20- year olds.

    I don't know if there are rules. My local sixth-form does have an Adult Learning area and I think I have seen the occasional adult student.

    I don't think being older is nearly as big an issue as being younger. I started attending sixth-form for maths lessons (alongside my secondary school) at 14, and there are some strange insurance-related rules involved.
