    I got realistic and realised my predicted GCSE grades will be an average of 5. So which six forms ( I know it isn't likely for me to go to sixth form but hey what the hell ) or colleges can I go to which I can do my A-Levels
    Thanks

    If your GCSEs are less than the usual "TSR 25 A*s and an intern at the UN all at the age of 16" then try further education colleges rather than sixth forms as they are more lenient with grades.

    Does the school you're at have one? I think the entry requirements are usually lower if you're already there.

    Am I missing something here, but how can we possibly know when you dont even say where you are in the country. Just identify the sixth forms in your area and then start researching what their entry requirements are. 5 isnt so bad and wont usually prevent you from doing an A level in the subject, so Id expect quite a few of the sixth forms will take you.

    I am pointing out why your OP could have done with some checking.

    You will need to get busy googling sixth forms in London then I expect there are a lot. There are some sites I think which may have a few lists but maybe start close to where you are first and do it by London boroughs. Theres not much way round having to do the reseatch.
