    Can someone please help me, I'm 17 i have left sixth form because the one i went to was just not for me but now i regret leaving because I don't know weather i can get back into another sixth form or not to continue studying and that i could go to uni. My grades aren't that great and i was supposed to be retaking maths and english so that makes it harder for me to find a sixth form that will accept me. I really don't know what to do and would appreciate all the help i can get.

    SInce you have Uni as a target, pinpoint what you want to study/ what are the requirements.
    Contact the following:
    - Previous Sixth Form
    - Local FE Colleges
    - Adult Community Colleges (Generally don't have GCSE requirements)

    Simultaneously contact Community Colleges and Sixth Forms, asking whether they can facilitate your study of GCSEs as well as your required FE Course/s, this way you will be able to exhaust your apparent avenues to uni. However before this, research into what you want to do and the specific course entry requirements, remember to note these down for several institutions of varying rigour to really ensure you get a place on your desired course.
    All the best! - Let me know how it turns out, here!
