Switching A-Levels after turning 19???Watch
So I went to sixth form for two years after doing my GCSEs and hated it, hardly ever went and ended up dropping a subject. I finished sixth form with 10% attendance and two E’s is Sociology and English Lit. I am now at college redoing my A-Levels for the second time round. I am currently nearing the end of my first year and I’m doing Biology, Psychology and Sociology. I’ve decided I would like to switch Biology to English Literature. There’s a high chance that the teacher will be fine with me skipping the first year of the course and only doing the second year to get a complete A-Level as the college I’m at studies the same topics as the sixth form I was at, so I’ve already completed first year content. The only issue I’m having is, my tutor said I may need to pay about £800 to enrol in a new A-Level as I have now turned 19. Does anyone have any advice on this?! Just to clear up, I was enrolled at the college at the age of 18 and have now turned 19 and I would like to swap one of my 3 a-levels. I come from a single-parent low-income household and I’m a full time student, does this help my case at all? Is there anything I can do to avoid the £800 fee without simply not changing my a-level choices?? Any help would be appreciated, I feel like I’m going grey with the stress of this.
