hi im thinking of repeating year 12 at a different college.

one of the subjects im taking currently has been a main cause of me developing anxiety issues - it gives me uncontrollable panic attacks and im terrified to even go to college because of it - and although college has given me really good support for anxiety, i cant even comprehend the idea of repeating the subject for another year because i'm not allowed to drop the subject.

i'm just afraid of being looked down on at the new college for being a year 13 age in year 12 classes.

is anyone in a similar boat or have any advice?

Hey,
So I’m in year 12 currently . I was in year sixth form then got kicked out and went to college . I know how stressful certain lessons can be especially when you have anxiety issues linked to that lesson, but if you feel as though this other college is giving you a lot of support and will help you get the grades you deserve then you should go for it . There’s no problems with being in the year below . In my college course I have people that are 21 and I’m only 17. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about or worried about .
