    I do want to go to uni but I just don't think a levels are for me and I think I will be better at college than sixth form, the only thing that worries me is that I won't be able to go to uni after completing college

    You can still go to uni after college, depending on what you want to study of course. Which subject(s) are you interested in?

    If I go to uni I would like to study social work and if I go to college I'd probably study health and social care or something related

    Really difficult question to answer without quite a bit more background information. One's not objectively any better than the other, it very much depends on you.

    Sixth form it would have your age group 16-18 whereas college it can be anyone in your class like 30 year olds but it also depends if they have your course research on there website

    Moved to Secondary School, Sixth Form and FE College. :dance:

    Of course you can go to university after college! :bigsmile: I went to a college and now I am in university. Most of my college friends are in university too (the ones who are not in university yet are staying in college for one more year to complete a BTEC and will apply to university afterwards). I did do A-levels, but that is beside the point since I know people who did BTECs and who got into university.

    Are you sure A-levels are not for you? I would give it some thought. If A-levels are not for you, maybe try a BTEC? :hmmmm:

    Sixth forms do not do BTECs often while colleges do, so maybe going to a college would be better for you. However, if you decide to go A-levels in the end, it does not matter if you go to a sixth form or college.
