    First of all, I'm at the breaking point where I think why I chose health and social.

    A bit of background, I am Asian so I have to pick a subject that I can do to make my family happy. With that I am the oldest so I have to be a good role model for them. I didn't get the best exam results at GCSE last year, which is why I'm doing health and social care level 2 with alongside maths.
    With health and social care I can do many jobs, I'm a creative person i like fashion etc. I like caring but the workload seem to much for me and it hard typing this as I don't know who to talk to as I feel as they will judge me. I am quite a loner and don't have a lot of friends. can someone help me?
    P.s i want to go uni that is for sure

    If health and social care is something you want to do then you should pursue it, no matter of the workload. I understand that you have to do something your family would like (I'm asian too), it will require hard work but I'm sure you'll manage it. It means you can go into a range of careers.

    It's okay to not have many friends, a lot of people don't, but try to get to know people on your course as it will help you when it comes to exams and coursework questions that you might have. Even if it means you just talk about the course, I'm sure there's others in the same position as you.

    You need to get used to the work load to be honest and learn how to cope with having to do work. Because I'm sorry to say it, if you struggle to cope with the workload of level 2 health and social care you simply won't cut it at university. Where the stakes are a lot higher and the work is a lot harder.

    You also need to speak to an academic supervisor or a careers advisor. You don't seem to know very much about career progression and what is needed.
