Can I change the subjects I study if I change my mind after submitting my application form?

Yes of course, although we do need to be able to plan for course interest and class size so there will be a brief window at the start of the academic year, after which your decision will need to be final.


If I accept a place here, does that mean I can’t change my mind about where I go?

Not at all, but we would need you to confirm your enrolment here by Results Day in August.


Can I accept places at BG6 and another sixth form college?

Yes, but as mentioned above we would need you to confirm your enrolment here by Results Day in August.
