Need advice for changing sixth forms at end of yr12 and when the deadline is


(I posted this before but wanted to change the title)

I’ve chosen maths, further maths and physics for A levels. I regret not taking computer science as a fourth and have applied to do so at my college however the class is currently full. The main reason I want to take it as-well is mainly incase I decide to drop further maths (which would leave me with only 2 A levels), but to get a feel for it since I want to take it at university.

I know its a long ways off right now, but if I did get into the situation where I feel the need to drop further maths I think I’d consider moving to a different sixth form and resitting year 12 with maths, computer science and physics. The teaching quality from my maths teacher also isn't great and i'm not enjoying the way college, rather than sixth form, is structured.

I have the GCSE grades to get into sixth forms (9,9,9,9,8,8,8,8,7) with 9s in computing and physics and an 8 in maths but main concern is when you have to apply for sixth forms by. When I search it up it says you should usually apply 18 months before, but obviously I’m not at that stage yet.

Does anyone have any experiences they could provide on this? It would be a great help
