    • A diploma is more specific to the course of interest where you will study subjects mostly related to the course. The Foundation you will study general subjects wide enough for you to consider different degree programmes. Not sure what you mean by is it good to take Form 6? Form 6 is a tough course and would require intellectual ability and consistent studying to succeed.
