Sixth Forms are the closest colleges to me,i was wondering weather i could enroll this Academic Year where i would be 17.I know their is a issue regarding age at sixth forms due to them being incoporated with Schools.When i do the Calculations,i'll turn 19 right at the end of A2 Exams if i do get enrolled,so to be honest i'll be 17 for AS Year and for the Majority of A2 i'll be 18.My Grades aren't the best also i would add

Ask them.
Each school will develop its own policy and while many that are incorporated into a secondary school won't take mature/adult learners most would consider someone of your age. They may well have some of their own existing students who need to repeat year 12.
If your grades arent good and it is a popular school with high academic standards your chances would be less.
Only one way to find out. Contact the schools and ask to meet with someone about sixth form entry.

Some 6th forms allow 18 year olds in year 12 and 19 year olds in year 13 (retook year 12 or year 13)

Everyone is 16 on entering sixth form, and they turn 17 that year. OP is already 17, so they've been set back a year.

If they do say no then you need to widen your search to other further education colleges that will accept you.
You need to get out there and search for the best possible opportunity.

Last activity - two weeks ago. You're better off creating a new thread about it - you'll likely get a quicker response.

I'm not "salty" lol. Your response is indicative of what "salty" is.
Anyway, I am "salty" now (due to your grammar). It's deeply, terribly and painfully bringing me to tears. How could you?!

You are truly the one still expanding this conversation. As a result, more tears shall continue dripping off your face.

Besides, you should be very proud of your self, taking the mick out of someone that English isn't their first language.
Adding on, talking and pointing out grammar mistakes on the internet, is wrong and childish. Especially in a place that I'm attempting to get information, and not a place where the only nobelists of English Literature and Language write.
