    Need other peoples perspectives on this
    Think its best I leave 6th form, it completely drains me, i have no motivation to revise, hate my subjects and the teachers, ect
    but mainly I have alot of private things going on in my family and i cant balance all the extra help i have to lend around the house and all the incoming stress, while trying to get through 6th form
    i would stay till the end of the year to get some AS qualifications, but my school is using a new system where I'm only studying for A2 qualifications, and my end of year exams pretty much just slightly contribute to my ucas and indicate to unis what to expect for my A2 results, or something essentially useless along those lines
    I reckon my best option is to get an apprenticeship so I can earn my own money and help take pressure off my family, and ideally have much more free time to help at home as I'm assuming there's no work to do outside working hours? (if someone can fill me in on this that would help massively)
    So basically was just wondering if anyone had any alternatives, and if they think taking an apprenticeship would make a difference to my situation, ect...
    obviously it would rule out uni but thats already been accounted for

    Apprenticeship sounds good

    I thought apprenticeships pay a pittance?
