    I did A-Levels for a year, last year, in a different college and left because I didn't feel comfortable in the atmosphere and hated a particular subject I took. Instead, I chose to change colleges and switch to a CACHE course, thinking A-Levels maybe weren't for me. However, I've found myself in a situation where I want to change back to A-Levels, as I know it was the subject I chose the previous time rather than A-Levels themselves. My question is, how far into an academic year can you change to a different course? Is it possible for me to make the change now? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

    Its up to the college. If you present a good case they may consider it or it may be too late. youd have to work very hard to catch up. It may be easier if you intend to repeat subjects you have already done. Ask them asap. they may not have space.

    Be prepared for them to say no.

    You won't know until you ask! But, likely yes, it's too late.
