    Sixth form - 5 A* to C GCSE grades.
    College - Basically anything... Few E's, etc.
    Go to what's best for you, but personally most of my friends went to college and they don't have half as much work as me outside of school/college.
    University's prefer Sixth Form because it shows you're willing to put all the hard work in revising for exams, etc.
    The only pro, for me, about college would be the new enviroment, but then I get that at university next year anyway?
    So many people who go to college say Sixth Form is rubbish... You just have to put the work in...

    For me, I had the choice of sixthform and an A level new modern college close by... and I chose sixthform. Sixthform isn't like normal school... you do have freedom's.. quite alot I must add but within reason. Your sixthform tutor and teachers actually care about the work you're producing... and adventurous ... well you can do enrichment, volunteer work... it just means you're a little more involved with studying than those at college. I mean, I'm not saying college is bad but it appears college folk are more adult like but without the learning... they have responsibility without the added tuition you'd get at sixthform.

    Personally? I'd take sixthform every time, the bonds you develop with people are closer where as at college... there is always going to be segregation i.e. a geek of technology wouldn't go up and talk to a posh kind of upper class " HI I'M LARA, I HAVE A PONY AND RIDE MY DADS JET TO SCHOOL.. YOU ALL SUCK " type of girl.
