I wanna go back and do A-levels (which I should have done last year), but anyways, most colleges start back next week, is it too late to apply now ?

I'm thinking of going down to the college tomorrow and asking about it.

I hope it's not too late.

I'd do it. I think that I could stand one night with a man for the financial security of my whole life and the life of my children

Yea man, it's probably too late but it's definitely worth a shot talking to the administration. Maybe they'll let you in. Good luck!

Ah. I don't know how the college system works there, but I know that colleges won't let you in past the registration date here, maybe even community colleges.

Bear in mind when an American is talking about college he's talking about university so it is next to impossible to enrol late unless you do clearing.

You might be fine, give it a shot.

What A-levels do you want to do anyways?

You have a good chance, but it also depends on the popularity of th course.

Def worth a try, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

Although there are the enevitable drop outs at the start of courses...I think I read somewhere that in courses you don't have to pay for in college around 1/3 of the class drop out within the first month.
#18
Yeah, if the courses are popular chances are you won't get a place so late. But I'm still getting letters from the local college telling me to apply because I need to do something with my life etc etc. They seem oblivious to the fact I'm going to a different college than theirs.

^ Chee like, physcology is a very popular choice, in the college i'm about to go to theres like 600 people taking it, and thats of about 1200/1500 people going in

Less popular ones though you may have a shot at though
#21
Well I just called up, and they're running interviews all this week.
So I'm lucky

All I have to do is go down, and they'll interview me and I choose what I want to do.

Ideal.

I'm thinking Law IT and English Lit.

In the UK, we have it so you go to high school until year 11, then you finish high school then at 16.
Then you go to college, or 6th form, and study, then you go to university.

In Scotland we'll usually stay in the same school for 6 years, and sit Highers in the 5th year which usually determine whether we get in to and what universities we get in to. In 6th year students can do Advanced Highers, or more Highers to improve upon results, and some private (public to you southerners) schools will do A levels.

If you wanna get into Castle college, you're too late, I tried doing the exact same thing, I failed a music BTEC at Burslem last year, and they wouldn't let me in this year because the government has changed the rules or some crap.
