Is College right for you?
Sometimes you may feel like the best path to follow in life is to head to college and study for your A Levels. It seems like a natural progression once you’ve left school with a bunch of hard-earned GCSEs, following the advice of your teachers when choosing which courses to do. But it has to be said that studying for A Levels aren’t for everyone.
If you’ve just gone back to college and you’re feeling unsure of your choice of courses, then it isn’t too late to reassess your academic situation. Take some time to sit down with your tutor to discuss alternative courses that you find yourself more interested in. This way, you get the chance to have one-to-one communication and receive professional advice that will help you to find the right path for you.

Just remember that it isn’t the end of the world if you realise that the subjects you’ve chosen aren’t right for you. Maybe you’re struggling with the work or you’re simply not very interested in your chosen subjects. Or perhaps you’ve chosen them because you are good at them, but are they going to support your career decisions in the future?
Now is the perfect time to think about the career you’d like to pursue; Think about your passions, your hobbies and your interests, and think about how you can make a career out of them. Once you’ve established this, you can start to construct your learning path to get you to where you want to be.
