    So I’v applied to a sixth form and my choices were English Literature, Geography and Psychology.

    However I’m having second thoughts about English because I don’t think I match well with it.

    For example during lessons I get really bored at times, but then I want to do it because there are times were I’m pro English and absolutely love it.

    My gut says switch to Biology or Chemistry ( another dilemma, but not near as big as the first)

    So I’v decided that I would try out English Lit for a week or so and see if I could stick to it and if I didn’t I would switch.

    Switching sounds simple, I know they may not have spaces but I’m being optimistic here, give me a break lol.

    I’m in Year 11 and my mind is going all over the place so yeh any help would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers

    I switched after I started my A-Levels! Most colleges and sixth forms are flexible because they want you to achieve the best that you can! I’d be highly surprised if there wasn’t room for you.

    Yes most likely. Many schools I know are very lenient with swapping subjects at A levels. However they have a deadline. I believe my Sixth Form's deadline was 2 weeks into Sixth Form. You shouldn't have a major problem as long as you meet the entry requirements for the subjects you want to take.

    The vast majority of sixth forms will give you that option, yes. Though, get in quick because I missed the deadline for swapping (my sixth form's deadline was a lot shorter than most others) just ended up dropping the subject I didn't want to do anymore.
