So I’m in year 12 at my secondary school’s sixth form, towards the end of the year now, and I absolutely hate it there. I don’t like my subjects, I have pretty much no friends, I hate being nagged and treated like a kid by teachers. But I’ve heard from my friends from secondary school, that went to college, that college is a lot more relaxed and you’re more independent and the subjects I’m actually interested in meet my GCSE entry requirements (as they didn’t at my sixth form), so is it a good idea to leave sixth form and start in college in September? I just don’t want to feel as if I’ve wasted a year. And also I know I would get the first year there free, as I’ll be 17-18 but will I get the second year free, my birthday is may so I will turn 19 right before the end of the A-Levels?
Any advice is much appreciated
Btw I currently do, Biology, Geography and a Btec in applied science and I want to do Law, Sociology and something else I’m not quite sure yet and my GCSEs are:
Combine Science (7-7), Geography (6), maths (4), English lang (4), literature (4), German (4), RE (4) and Food (pass 2)

You are always going to be better off taking subjects you actually want to do, but you should seriously consider whether it's a good idea to switch from subjects which all correspond to your better GCSEs to essay subjects at A level, given that you barely passed your writing-related GCSEs.

You've only got 1 year left of the A Levels. Can't you just stick it out? How are your grades doing?
