So I don’t know if I should stay at my current school or move to a new one for sixth form. Both schools are good. However the new one does 4 options and you can do a EPQ whereas my current school only does 3 options but I have been there for 5 years. The new school is 10 mins further than my current school. The new school would probably have more pressure but hopefully more opportunities. My current school is really close to where I live and my younger siblings go there too

I don’t know what to do because I don’t wanna go to the new school and have regrets but I don’t know weather to stay at my school or not
The schools are oaks park and Beal

u dont really need a 4th option provided at the new school, unless EPQ counts as a 4th subject? (i thought it was just extra). are you sure your school doesnt offer EPQ? if it does, id say its better to stay at ur school, plus u know everyone there, teachers, friends, siblings, should be easier to get help and study from

The EPQ is a extra and I haven’t heard of a EPQ at my school, so you think I should stay?
Btw thanks for the reply

Assuming both sixth forms offer the subjects you want to take, and allow you to take them within timetabling restrictions, then choose whichever you prefer.

Remember there is no advantage to doing 4 alevels though

Doing 4 A Levels is just pointless and essentially just added pressure to what you already have

It will more than likely pull down your other grades as you'll have added pressure from another A Level, so yes but no
