    Do you mean you are not sure whether to do A levels, and then go on to university, or to do NVQs or similar at an FE college?

    What do your current teachers recommend? What grades roughly do you expect in your GCSEs? Best subjects? Any career plans or interests?

    i wanna be a doctor and my expected grades are between A, A* and B's. i do wanna do my a levels but should i do college or sixth form. my best subjects are english, biology and math. teachers are just saying to go with my gut instincts. (i don't know what that is meant to mean)

    Doctor in what country? What country are you a citizen of?

    So you mean A levels at a sixth form college, FE college, or at the sixth form in your current school? I'm not sure it makes much difference tbh.

    If you seriously want to pursue medicine you will need to do Chemistry A level. Biology and maths would be good second and third subjects. Only do English if you think you will have time for a fourth A level.

    i do mean A levels at sixth form. i think sixth form is just for extra time for studies and courses and stuff. thanks for the help with the medicine stuff i could so try hard for those grades :smile:
