    Hi. I'm currently in my first year of AS, and since Jan I have been feeling unhappy with my choices and wanted to drop out and then rejoin in September with new choices, which my college said was fine. However, my parents did not approve of this and was forced to stay till the end. However, now my college have told me that they won't accept me again because I would have wasted a year and it would look bad on them. So now I have no A Levels, and most colleges have closed their applications. I'm so depressed and don't know what to do. I'm 17 and have 8 A-C's for my GCSE's. What are my options?

    Try applying to the colleges even if they've closed their applications, explain the circumstances with your parents and beg them to consider you. Alternatively, beg the college you were at before, it's not fair that something you can't even help has impacted on your education, and your welfare and education should come above how the college looks.

    I'm sure you can find a college where you can still do your A levels at your age this year, if not next year.
