    so I'm applying to different sixth forms... (I know this doesn't sound like a big deal but it's kinda stressing me)
    there's this one that's basically intellectuals only and is self described as "academically vigorous" g 5 A's needed to get in (not really the problem for me) however they kick you out in year 12 if you fail to hit the grade CCC in a Level which I'm scared I won't be able to achieve because I've heard A level bio and Chem are incredibly difficult. they do have a 99% a*-c rate (but that may just be cause of low retention rates)

    the school I'm currently in has a sixth form but I hate the environment and the education isn't the best. the pass rates are low but the people going there just stress me out and I don't want to stay but I'm starting to feel like I'm gonna have to

    the other school i wanna apply to is nice looking but I've heard a lot of mixed opinions about it and even though they have a pass rate that's also very high, I again don't know if that's purely because of low retention rates or if I wanna take he risk of going to a different school rather than staying at my own

    there are no other sixthforms nearby for me to go to (I've ruled them out) for various reasons

    I'm fine if I have to return back to my current school if external ones don't work out but thats not ideal

    I guess in summary I'm asking
    Is it Extremely difficult to get CCC AS grades by. end of year 12?
    Is it worth leaving my comfort zone?

    Hey,

    I think that if you are already a high achiever then I don't see why you couldn't get CCC or higher if you work hard. Maybe chose which ever you think at the moment and then you could always relook at your options depending on what you get at GCSE 🙂

    That's okay. I would try not to over think it. Some of my friends made their final decision of where they were going after their GCSE results. I think alot of places are quite flexible. May be worth emailing and asking some questions about drop out rates and grades after year 12 if that would help 🙂
