ohhh. So what is the difference between sixth form and college exactly?

No i dont think thats true actually, im gna be going to a college and they DO teach you, they may not spoon feed like a sixth form but the classes are just as small - they split everyone up into teaching groups to make it easier for someone to learn as more attention is given to them

okay so there's no difference between sixth form and college??

well sixth form is smaller and usually more picky with who they accept and is usually a continuation from a school whereas a college is ONLY for a levels and nothing else

sixth form because it's strict and more likely to pay attention and get awesome grades:)

I would also say 6th form. Really theres no difference, but the step up from GCSE to AS is massive, and you'll probably find that being in a familiar enviroment will help a lot.

Sames here, I agree with what Emily says:

But also, i find it easier to adjust, as the jump between GCSE and A Level is huge, but a familiar environment and teachers who you might already know, helps with the transition.

i would say Sixth Form. You have just come form High school and are not that prepared to go to the 'Bigger World'. Sixth Form gives more attention to the students and is more in a school environment.

Im in my last year of sixth form and going to college in september because of it. I would say college as from when I went to look around mine they prepare you for uni whereas a sixthform kinda spoon feeds you. but if you want probs smaller classes then go the sixth form. Sixth form is good I guess it depends on the type of worker you are. When I compare the two there not much difference. In my opinion I would go and have a look around them and decide which you could most see yourself going to.

Both 6th form and college have their strengths and weaknesses:

If you go to college, you'll probably gain more independence and when you go to uni, it won't be a huge shock

But if you go to 6th form, you'll probably get more help from the teachers.

Anyway, at the end of the day, it's your choice :D
