    Is it legal for 6th forms to make you pay for current exams not resits just because you are doing badly in one or two subjects even though your attendance is fine? I have paid for resits already and am in my second year of alevel but it was mentioned that i may have to pay for the a2 exams as well even though i havent sat them yet?

    Pretty sure they're allowed to kick you off altogether then they'd have no obligation to pay for your exam.

    awwww I hope u get better!!! the school being broke isn't an excuse they get given money by the government and I think they should pay for your exams. Don't pay them without looking into it.

    Theres a big difference between "May have to" and "Have to". It hasnt happened yet. If it does then ask them upon what basis and make a complaint.

    Compost is an exam officer so just follow what they said.

    I had to pay for exams, on top of tuition fees, when studying A levels evening classes at community college.

    16 -17 yr olds in 'sixth form' maybe considered different though :wtf:

    No they cant. It is illegal for a sixth form or college to kick you out based on academic reasons alone.
