    When I went to enroll at my college, I wasn't pushy enough about the A-levels I wanted to do, got put on a BTEC, and then my parents moved me to another school entierly. The other school doesn't offer the A-levels that I really want to do, so I seem to be stuck doing ones that I don't especially want to do. (Computer science, DT, Physics and Geography). I wanted to do Enviromental Sciences, Geology and Geography, but my local college is the only place that offeres those courses. Is there anything I can do, or is it too late. (I'm year 12)

    If you have your heart set on doing these A-level subjects, talk to your parents and your local college. It might be that you have to restart Year 12 next year if the college feels you have missed too much work.

    Yeah, but my parents think this school will stop my 'lazy habits', and aren't helping me with my choice of A levels, they'd rather have my lazy habits fixed.

    Seems like you cant get past your parents.

    They might listen if you give them good reasons as to why you want to do the other A levels. I.e you know which degree and career. You will get better grades. Talk to your teachers.

    At least you are doing Geography and a science.

    Its probably going to be too late to move to College now, but maybe you can try next year. talk to the college to see whats possible.

    Your target still needs to be to get good grades if you want options when you leave schools.

    Yeah...
    I am going to take a morrisby test and find out what that says, my parents are very keen on the idea of the test, so hopefully that does as it says, and give me something else to backup my argument!
