    I've been attending a senior school since I started in year 7 and everything was going decently. I got decent (mediocre) GCSE results and I'm currently waiting for my AS results. But now I've found out that due to my father leaving the army I'm no longer qualified to get CEA which is the funding I needed to stay at that school. This on top of an upcoming move to another part of the country, I'm lost on what to do. For one, I'm not even sure I'll have a school place come September and I have very little idea on what I want to do with my life.
    Sorry for complaining, any advice would be great.

    1. You cna ask or check with your school of ut has any bursaries or scholarships. Always worth a try. Maybe there is some continuation of cea check the rules.
    2. If you are moving elsewhere then you need to check with your parents. Are they intending to find a fee paying school for you or will you need to look at the state system?
    3. If its the state system, then you will need to start reseraching schools in the locality you will be moving to checking them on the league tab;es or soem form of good school guide, going to websites and then applying to join the 4th form. Alternatively going to college. Ovbiously its a bit tricky as you need to contrinue your current subjetcs and board so you can do A2 on the same syllabus. Alternatively you cna decide to teach yourself.
    4. part of me thinks your parents should be helping, whilst the other half feels they arent much use and it will be up to you to get yourself sorted.

    As to what to do with your life. i would finish your A levels first. You cna decide on Uni or apprenticeships after.
