    Half term just finished and I have realised I made a mistake with going to the college I currently go to, I hate it for many reasons: the long days, the boring and easy lessons etc. And I really want to go to my old school for A Levels instead. I am willing to work hard and catch up to work I've missed just to get out of college, but would they take me in the first place?

    My mum has said "of course they will, you did well in GCSEs so theyll want you back" but idk.

    Anyone whos done this before? Or has seen someone else do it. Because as long as I pass my AS levels I'll be set for Year 13 I think

    The only way to find out is to ask them. My school would not take someone for A levels so late but others may be more flexible especially if you have a good reputation in the previous school.
    If they say no, work hard to achieve as much as you can at college this year and think about your plans for the following year. Don't just give up as you may regret it in the future. It is absolutely not the end of the world if you restart year 12 with a change of school and a change of qualifications and that will be easier off the back of a decent performance at college.

    People in my school came back all throughout the first half term, it should be fine, especially if your doing similar subjects in college as the ones you want to do for a-level!

    Why did you even go to college in the first place?

    Why did you even go to college in the first place?
    because i was set on a career in film and didnt want to do anything else, but now i realise it isnt what i want to do and i now have no idea, so I need a levels to keep options open, i also hate how long the days are at college and they tire me out as i need to get the train every day
