So College starts on Monday, and I haven’t enrolled yet, I dropped out last year for many reasons and want to join again, because I’m in a better shape of mind.

When I dropped out I enrolled onto a Distance Learning a-level course to give me some sense of purpose, and it was probably the best thing I done, I’m getting A’s and B’s in my exams.

My college’s website says that most students take 3 a-levels, but if I joined I wouldn’t want to be doing 3 with them, as I want to continue on with my distance learning course.

Am I allowed to do two with the college, and one with my provider?

Colleges and Sixth Forms don't let prospective students take less than 3 A-Levels.

Either join the college and take 3 or continue with your distance learning course.

I just don’t get why though, surely I’m not costing as much? I don’t see where one a-level can actually get me, unless I enrol onto two more distance learning courses, which’ll be costly.

I know of 1 SF and 1 college with students taking less than 3 A Levels, so it's not always the case that you have to take 3.

OP, I'd call your local college and ask. You said the website says 'Most students take 3...', it doesn't say you have to. So just call and ask if taking 1 or 2 is possible

A lot of our learners are studying some of their A-levels in a local college/sixth form centre and one or two online with us.

You need to speak to your local college about the situation, they may accept you to study 2 A-levels - only they can tell you!

Good luck with your studies
