My experience at college/sixth form has not been the best, i was only able to do 2 a levels and needless to say i do not have a good relationship with my college and do not know where to turn to. Where do i go to apply for another alevel?! I really would like to get all 3 of my alevels so that i can go to uni.
Any help would be appreciated

I looked to another college thats fairly close to me and no where on their college website did they mention take on people applying for additional a level , do most colleges allow people to apply. Do you think i should email them ?

I don't think you can do 2 a levels at one college and then another in a different college.
You could either apply to the other college for all 3 a levels in September (which means you'd have to do them for 2 years), or apply for the additional a level in your college (which means you'd have to do it for 2 years) and continue the 2 a levels you're already doing till next june/july.
And then apply to uni in sept 2021.

I suppose you could try emailing the college if you wanted to

btw,
what a levels are you doing right now?
what additional a level do you want to do?
what course do you want to do at uni?
what are your expected a levels?
what did you get in your gcses?

My GCSES were manily B's and C's so quite average
And my predicted grades were also B and C
I took alevel eng lit and law and have completed those a levels.
However i want go to uni in 2020 and complete the additional a level in one year instead of two years as i have heard of quite a few people doing that and also because i dropped the 3rd alevel i was doing at the time at the end of the 1st year . I have looked at paying online for an alevel course, studying independently and then taking your exam in June/July.
I know its an option people do not typically take but if i want to apply to uni in 2020 and i have done half the course already would it not be more efficient? The only problem is references from teachers and predicted grades.
Thanks for your help btw
