    My mum passed away a couple weeks ago, it has meant I'd have to move from my home and school (sixth form) in South London, to my Dad's in Hertfordshire. As someone who is redoing AS how should I go about enrollment, just calling up schools in Hertfordshire. Is it to late? Since I worry now it's mid-November.

    Due to your circumstances you can try calling schools and explaining to them.

    You'll have to contact the schools in the town (Hertfordshire is a big place) and explain what happened and hopefully there can be a transfer that's as easy as it can be.

    And I agree with the rest about explaining your circumstances to any sixth forms you apply to.

    First and foremost I am deeply sorry for your loss, i know what it's like to lose a loved one. As for the sixth form situation, i would ring up different schools/colleges to see if they're still enrolling students. Some schools are different to others, so it really depends on which schools allow you to join at this time.

    She passed away two weeks ago so I took a week of school and went to school this week. But the commute is to far from my dad's so now I have to search for a new school.

    Are you dealing with it okay? It feels like you're overlooking it and not accepting the grief or even grieving, by distracting yourself with education based stuff. You're entitled to forget the world for a while and grieve and you can then deal with things when you feel ready.

    Condolences for your loss.

    It is definitely worth a try - let them know your situation. If not, you could always take a gap year.

    All the best
