    I’m in year ten now (yes, I’m rather young) and in a good school, and i have full intentions to stay on there. I’m fairly good academically, on track to get my target grades ( six 9’s and four 8’s) but I have a problem - I really, really want to do A level politics, but my school doesn’t offer it. They do the other two courses i want, just not that one. What are my options? I could go to a local collage, but it’s quite a distance and I really don’t want to. I could afford a tutor, but not sure that’s a good idea either. Anyone got any ideas what approach my school will take? Thank you

    Are there any other 6th forms or colleges in your area that you could look into?
