I want to study forensic science, and i've seen a college course at Newcastle College which is perfect for me but would it be better to do that which focuses on this subject or take chemistry, biology and maths at sixth form. I just don't know what would be better. I really want out of my school and want to go to college but lately i've been thinking that maybe I should suck it up for another 2 years. I just don't know and need some advice.To sum, forensic science and criminology course vs. chemistry, biology and maths courses? College vs. Sixth form?

i presume you'll be wanting to study forensic science at uni also? you'll need to research what their entry requirements and if they'll accept the college course you're interested in for their course (you might be better off emailing admissions??). a-levels will help you keep your options open- you may have a change of heart of what you want to study halfway through year 12.
for example, USW (https://www.southwales.ac.uk/courses...ensic-science/) asks for a levels in biology and chemistry.
if you're not interested in or enjoy biology and chemistry it might be worth rethinking your options. it's important you take a-levels you enjoy.

I do have my top three contenders for universities and have researched them extensively however they don't specifically say that they take college courses over a-levels and so was hoping that maybe a uni student or just an a-level student knew. But I think I might end up emailing them if not I am more than happy to apply for sixth forms as I've found a sixth form that is far away from my school and has a really high success rating for their students but we'll see. Thank you for your help.
