first of all, what were your gcses? x i am sure that you will be able to find another college that will accept you, but you may have to change your course if you do not meet the requirements.

if you are unable to do that then you will probably need to resit your gcses which you can do in january. you could take a year out to do this or resit gcses via a college.

No wonder. You need like 5/6 to go to a 6th form and then preferably a B in each subject you want to do

Have you considered taking a one-year course to build up your Level 2 qualifications so you can apply to Sixth Form next year?

Eek, that's definitely a tough situation.
Honestly, the most likely choice is to do a Level 2 course at College which takes 1 year before proceeding onto a Level 3 course for another 2 years.

Depending on what you want to do, this is not that bad. You can easily get great grade on a BTEC at College and proceed to a great University (As long as you dont want Oxford or Cambridge).

What are the reasons for wanting to go to Sixth Form so bad?
I have been and still am at College and would choose it over Sixth Form in most circumstances. The 3 days a week mean you have plenty of time to complete any coursework as well as hold a weekend job if you want. An Extended Diploma is equivalent to 3 A Levels which is likely what you would complete at Sixth Form with Distinction* being equivalent to A/A*'s in UCAS points.

It's not a race. The goal is to obtain the best outcomes.

I can already go straight into level 3 business, and I just much prefer everything at the sixth form, everything is so much better and the college im going to is quite far away and the environment is soooo bad((((((
